Sometimes in life you have to take that leap of faith. A metaphorical stumble into the unknown, blindingly hoping. As I stood on the edge of a bridge in New Zealand about to take a literal leap, with nothing but bungee rope to stop me from plunging to my death, I couldn’t help but think … Continue reading Leap of Faith – My Queenstown Marathon
One week down, three to go.... The first week has not been a normal week to put it lightly so comparing how my running is being affected is difficult. During the week I moved house; days of loading up boxes, cars and trailers combined with swearing at furniture and shouting "PIVOT" swallowed up most of my … Continue reading A Runners Diet – Week One

It wasn’t the tiredness or my body groaning under the mismanaged miles but the sun … Continue reading INTERNATIONAL MARATHON MAN – PART TWO

The first is something I've unoriginally entitled 'Post-back', it will be a … Continue reading Post-back and Three Song Playlists
I realise that this title may mean absolutely nothing to the vast majority of you. Toad in the Hole is a simple and very British dish that is hearty and comforting. The key to making the dish posh and also incredible is to use the best quality streaky bacon and sausages you can lay your … Continue reading Posh Toad in the Hole
