Hello running friends, how are you?
It’s been a while… and I’ve missed you! The runs have been wet, cold and windy, but I complain not knowing that this year’s run777 tour is hopefully less than 7 weeks away. I say hopefully as we keep a close eye on the COVID-19 situation — more news on this to follow.
I hope your year has gotten off to a Goodr than better start? I’m writing this on route back from The UK National Running Show where I’ve spent the day listening, chatting and hanging out with an awesome group of people called… runners!
One legend that was sharing his time with us mere mortals, was none other than Olympic gold medallist Linford Christie. I tried to sign him up to next year’s run777 — not sure if this counts as a binding contract?
Truth is that there was so much good stuff to choose from that it would be impossible to list it all out here. Last mention is to the guys at Bad Boy Running for dominating their stage and brining out some great stories from the likes of Camille Herron, Allie Bailey, James Elson and more. …
Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying the last day of this decade, in a style that makes most sense for you.
This morning I managed to get out for my last run of 2019, which I dedicated to some thoughtful contemplation about the year ahead. I get the sense that 2020 will bring with it a whole lot of clarity… if you know what I mean 😉
As the year comes to an end and the 2019 round-ups and 2020 goal-setting articles flood the internet I was caught most by this little tit-bit of wisdom whilst listening Shane Parish’s Knowledge Project podcast interview of Hugh Howey. …
Hello beautiful people -
Isn’t it just a beautiful thing that Eliud Kipchoge has won the World Sport Star of the Year 2019 for his sub 2 hour marathon?
If you didn’t get a chance to watch Eliud make history back in October, I strongly suggest you find 1 hour 59 min over the festive period to sit back and enjoy, what is without a doubt, one of the most deserving performances of a World Sports Person of the year ever.
More beautiful than Eliud’s running performance is his post run interview where he asks that the legacy of his run is used to make the world a more beautiful place. If you don’t have 1 hour 59 min at least take 59 sec to listen to these beautiful words from his post run-interview. …
True to my promise I’ve kept this newsletter irregular… which is often what training can become at this time of year. As the holidays approach and the year comes to an end it seems that little bit more tricky to squeeze the training into an already busy schedule. These wise words from James Clear got me out the door on a cold December morning in Belgium (photo evidence here) 🥶.
The bad runs are often the most important ones. It’s easy to train when you feel good, but it’s crucial to show up when you don’t feel like it — even if you do less than you hope. …
