9 Top iPhone Apps for Runners Thumbnail

I’ve been running with my iPhone for a couple of years and I think I have now got a fairly stable armory of running or health related apps that I would be prepared to recommend. I’ll split them into 4 sections and go from there. The Running Logs The iPhone is my ever present mobile [...]

Nike Grid – Run Your City

Nike Grid – Run Your City Thumbnail

Today marks the start of the new and improved Nike Grid 2.0. It would appear from the version control that Nike has already managed to slip one of these urban orienteering style adventures past me. This time round though, I am in. Hook, line and sinker. In brief: Nike have commandeered 4 phone boxes in [...]

Views on Nike Free 3.0 as a Transition Shoe Thumbnail

Somewhere along the line I seem to have developed a shoe fetish. I started off in life with a classic shoe phobia and made it into adulthood with a pair of red wellies and a work shoe. An interest in sport increased my repertoire but even then I managed to live in a pair of [...]

Adidas MiCoach and New Gadget Heaven

Adidas invited me and a few other bloggers (Big Runner and Running Matters) to try out their recent entrant into the sports gadget market - the miCoach pacer. On Thursday evening I arrived at the Millenium Arena in Battersea Park ready for the presentation. I began to sweat almost immediately as I spotted the running [...]

Garmin Forerunner FR60 – The Review

I can get over the treadmill boredom frontier by sticking a gruesome thriller on the iPod but the absence of a reliable data capture device (or sports watch) could call the end to a beautiful gym relationship membership. I’ve worked my way through a number of fancy running watches over the years but my latest, [...]

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't run an awful lot of late, in fact if you want to be reasonably precise, I have run only once in the last month, which also happens to equate to once this year. How neat. If we want to be 100% precise it could be argued [...]

Here I Am

I've been quiet for a while but I'm still out here, running and swimming a bit. Swimming is still my biggest concern, I made it to the pool on Sunday thinking I'd sneak in a mile but I got bored and bruised after 1 km and called it quits. I was trapped in an anticlockwise [...]



Nike Humanrace and Waterlogged Gadgets

Saturday evening, after entertaining my family with a slightly charred roast lamb joint but a perfectly acceptable bottle of vino (or two), I get an email from Nike. Apparently, if I could resurrect the long dead Nike+ Sportband, and push my sorry arse out of the door, complete with Sunday morning hangover, to complete a [...]

The Power of Belief

Kelly Sotherton makes her bid for Olympic gold at the Heptathlon starting this Saturday. If positive thinking is anything to go by she is going to bring home the gold for team GB. Nike interviewed Kelly about a month before the big event, nothing too unusual about that except this time she was connected to [...]



Great Capital Run

As is usual for race day, I wake up grumpy as hell and immediately text OGB to remind him that he is entirely responsible for all that is wrong with the world - he replies with something outrageously abusive. A quick look back over previous race reports ought to be enough to remind me why [...]
