Total distance (YTD): 636km Total half marathons completed: 6 With the 5 peaks trail series more than half way done, I’ll be looking for some additional trail running races to tag on in the second half of the year. There have definitely been some polarizing moments along this journey. I went for a short … Continue reading The Running Project (part 3)
I stop to catch my breath. The morning sun is already warm. A fine change from recent weeks. I’m 7 kms in to my morning run and the sweat is beginning to sting my eyes. Keep moving! I am trying to tie off my monthly running goal by the end of the long weekend so I have a few days to shift gears. Doubtful. We’ll … Continue reading On the edge of everywhere

For those of you that are just tuning in. You’re just in time! This is my running project for 2022. 1200km running for the year. I dragged myself out of a COVID slump in 2021 and attempted the 1000km challenge, completing it just days before the year’s end. So of course this set my brain into a frenzy of what ifs, and could I’s for … Continue reading The Running Project (part 1)

Not entirely sure what all is on the table, but I can say nothing is off the table at this point. I will keep this brief. This post “Ok, Amongst … Continue reading Ok, Amongst Other Things
This year started out very differently than it is finishing for me. I started out training for a marathon in the spring, having just got back into running, this was a feat in itself. 12 weeks of training up. Yes, it is as exhausting as it sounds. I ran the marathon in May. After completing it (and recovering from it) I got to thinking, could … Continue reading 6 Things I Learned From Running 1000km This Year
Do you even run Bro? I used to. I used to run alot. Half marathons mainly. Those were my jam. I spent alot of time logging kms. And then I stopped. I’m not sure why. I had a child, and maybe my mindset shifted after that. I was busy trying to juggle poor sleep, a family life, and a career and figured being tired all … Continue reading Diary of a tired man
The Idea It started with an idea, a challenge really. May 20 2021 was the mark of many things. It was a Thursday, it was Covid 19 pandemic day # 400+ whatever, and also my 40th birthday. I had decided back in January to mark my fortieth birthday with something different. Due to the pandemic there was no big 40th bash to be had, no … Continue reading The Forty on Forty Project
So I’m not sure if this is a thing or not. But a week and a half ago, while trail running, I tripped and rolled over my ankle. Badly. Bloody Hell. Nothing more inconvenient than a rolled ankle while marathon training right? I laid there like a sorry mess for a moment. Assessing the damage. It didn’t “feel” broken. And we were pretty far from … Continue reading Running through an injury?
Well this one’s all about running. Since starting this Forty on forty project, it’s basically all I’m doing. Wake run. Work run. Run run. Pushing towards the ultimate goal of running a full marathon on my 40th birthday. Eek. When did that sneak up? I am about half through training and am now 2 months away from race day. It’s wild the amount of dedication … Continue reading About Running.
