Someone searched today on ‘Lorn Pearson Highland Fling’ and got to my blog… well… it took place yesterday (Saturday 28th April) but I didn’t do it. I decided that the D33 was the Ultramarathon for me to have done and … Continue reading
I thought I’d get this together for a good friend of mine Cris who is running the London marathon this weekend. If you are reading this Cris… (or if you are anyone doing the London marathon this weekend)… good luck! … Continue reading

I had planned on doing about 20 mile this weekend, but when the opportunity to run less distance over hills with Julie Ann came along I thought that would be a good idea. We ended up doing just over 17 … Continue reading
