I’ve been a little slow with a couple of the reports so there’s now been a few updates to the website.

Running has been a little patchy over the last few months and I’m still feeling the slight effects of the knee injury I sustained in the Monarchs Way in June so whilst I am running at the moment I’m definitely not fully recovered or fighting fit yet. However, when I see some of my Facebook friends not running due to more serious injuries then perhaps I should be happy I can at least do what I can.

The one (only) good result from the Monarchs Way was that I managed to raise over £3k for the Alexander Devine Charity so a big thank you to everyone who supported and donated, this was very much appreciated.

I’m sorry to say the Saturday Night Marathon events have also come to a close. Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed hosting these small low-key Marathon & Half-Marathon events and had some good feedback from the runners, it’s a lot of effort for a one-man band and I think I’ve fulfilled the desire to put on a few races and so have brought these to a close.

Thanks to everyone who helped out or took part in the events, your support was much appreciated. I’ve just got to work out what to do with 50 Saturday Night Marathon medals now… Training runs Saturday Night anyone?

Finally, a couple of race reports have been added to the website. Firstly, was the ill fated second T184 attempt and DNF which you can read about here. This was a race which I should never have really started.

In addition there’s a brief write up of last weekends Rocky Marathon Triple weekend which you can read about here which started ok and went a little downhill but there’s a few amusing fancy dress pictures in the report.

Hopefully I can make the start line of the Autumn 100 as I should really try and finish a long distance race this year! (2-1 down at the moment).
