running from depression

2015 has seen me return to depression. That's not a word I use often or lightly. It's a word that has all manner of negative connotations that I don't like to be associated with. It's a word that maybe forces me to admit I'm not on top of things and I can't cope! It is... Continue Reading →

The Cure

I'm having a strange running block. I know it's the cure I need but I lack the forward momentum to get my ass out the door. Have arranged to run with a good friend tomorrow evening. Hopefully it'll be the start of a return to form and more smiles. It may even mean I can... Continue Reading →

Worried Man…Has Plan

Well plans are now in motion, the metaphorical digital gauntlet has been metaphorically thrown down and in about 5 weeks time I'll be embarking on my first stab at running a marathon (a real one - not a metaphor). OK so I'm doing my first one in a slightly unconventional way but I'm doing it.... Continue Reading →
