Hello, if you’re new here. Hello to you as well if you’re a follower of my old WordPress blog and you’ve joined me over here.

Thanks for stopping by, whoever you are.

This site is the continuation of a little blog I started back in early 2011. I’d had a few glasses of wine and signed up for a marathon. I had never run more than 13.1 miles before at that point.

I used that place to blog about the marathon and it helped me to raise over £2,000 for charity.

I completed the marathon and thought I was done blogging. I had a record of the hardest, yet most rewarding summer of my life, and thought that would be it.

I couldn’t stay away though, and gradually I built the place up to be more than just a record of that summer.

Now it is in a different place, in a different colour. And sometimes I write about different things.

I also still write about running. Quite a bit.

If you follow me, you will be “rewarded” with plenty of drivel, mostly about running, but occasionally football, music, travel, computer games, general boozing and whatever else takes my fancy.

Basically, I’m a bit of a running nut, see. But I like all the other stuff, too.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
