What it’s not about

OK so today I went out for a run… This run was not about how long it’s been since I have been out to run. It’s not about how busy I have been. It’s not about the weather or any health related issues. It is about the fact that I have been out, all runs…

An Android Convert?

I received my OnePlus 5 goody bag on Friday following my win in the OnePlus 5 Photography Competition. OnePlus were very generous. I received: OnePlus 5 128GB 8GB Black silicon case OnePlus Travel Backpack As mentioned before I have only had experience of a stock Android phone with the entry level phone that work provided…

Hell just might freeze over 

Anyone who knows me well (and not that well but well enough to know my online opinions), will know that I am fully signed up to the cult of Apple. I have been for years.  I love the devices.  I love the operating system.  I love the thought and attention to detail.  I admire the…

#dogwoodweek7

Portrait: Faceless. Tell someone’s story without showing their face. I struggled with this challenge a) because I didn’t know who I was going to capture b) because I thought it would be odd snapping someone random who was hard at work with my phone… Inspiration finally struck me on Thursday whilst I was on the…

#dogwoodweek2

In the second part of the Dogwood photography challenge was themed as a landscape week.

#dogwoodweek1

Apart from running, cats, my baby, history and hunky men (!), I have other interested and one of these is photography. Like many people I like to take snaps and try my best to take photographs but don’t aways hit the mark. To challenge myself I have decided to take up the Dogwood 52 Week…

A Quick Burst*

Definitely a quick burst, of energy, heat and movement! I went for the loop round the block which I am now christening my winter loop! I did remember on the walk back that I have my Buff and some gloves which I think I may need if the runs continue like this. Mainly this is due…

Another update from NYC

I write this as we are back in the UK.  We had a great time in the Big Apple and enjoyed lots of sightseeing. The weather was changeable but that did not stop us.  Another great break to the Big Apple. Here are some more of my photos from Liberty Island, the High Line, Chelsea…

Weighing in…

I had the day at home working which enabled me to focus.  Indeed I got lots done today which was good. I finished as scheduled so went out for a run before the sun went down. My 4K was quite good on Tuesday and RunKeeper reckoned it was fairly quick so I decided to do…

Conversational Run

I bought some new Nike Lunarglide 5’s when my parents visited and noticed during my last run that the soles were starting to wear on my Flyknits.  I therefore decided to try the new trainers today to break them in. I have had a very long week this week, being in the office around 7:30am…

3K (s)

A quick run around the block as I have not run since the weekend my parents arrived.  I have either been too busy or feeling under the weather. Today’s run was a good 3K and although I had some problems with getting crap on my chest I felt OK. I pushed myself and managed to…

Don’t blame it on…

Don’t blame it on the (lack of) sunshine
Don’t blame it on the (earlier rising) moonlight
Don’t blame it on the (hard work not) good times
Blame it on the… me!
