After 8 weeks of hard training over a total of 123.5 miles, the eve of the Dentdale 14 mile race is here!

Happy New Year everyone, it’s been a while since my last blog as my time has mostly been taken up by Xmas parties, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and eating loads of rubbish…all wrapped up with 2 doses of the Flu…however, i am now back to my good old healthy living and training regime and looking to get back into shape!

As my training includes jogging, a friend of mine whom i run with asked me if i fancied trying a half Marathon? I pondered on this for a while and thought ‘Well why not, plenty of my friends have done the Great North Run, and i’m not in too bad a shape! Read the rest of this entry »
