I went for a short run in the Olympic Park in East London this morning. Nothing new there. It’s where I run. It is my local park after all. While out running I realised that it is actually 10 years (almost to the day) that I moved into my 2 bedroom flat in Stratford. Wow…

I am a proud Londoner, I always have been. London is in my blood, it’s in my bones (as Adele sings in her song about the River Lea) as at least 5 generations of my family have lived in this wonderful city. The only time I’ve ever lived outside was when I was studying for…

Entering races is quite addictive I’ve found, but it sure as hell ain’t cheap, come to think about it, it ain’t even straight forward anymore. I have done maybe 20 odd organised events of some sort, and I have only ever fund raised for one… The London Triathlon. Reason being I wasn’t sure if I…
