Now that the dust has settled on another Half Marathon I still feel an enormous sense of pride, legs are still aching though, by missing out on a PB by 6 minutes. Now some people may find this strange but this needs to be taken into consideration of the course type. This race, as picturesque as it is, is not flat and as many of … Continue reading So close to a PB at the Chester Half Marathon
Whilst trying to set up this, my very first, blog site I thought I was on a server which suited my needs but after several speed and performance issues it soon became clear that I wasn’t on what I needed. Thankfully I now am and back up and blogging/venting! But it made me think about my main hobby and that is running and the importance … Continue reading Having the right equipment does make the difference!
Yes in some places but still the place to be. It pains me to say this because, I love the city and if you saw my dining room you would soon start to see my obsession with the place. Now I recently went back to New York after a long period of time, as part of my daughters 16th birthday present, and it was a … Continue reading Has New York become the victim of its own success?
1997 Now you may ask why blame the Lightning Seeds. I love the Lightning Seeds they are one of the best bands I have seen live in concert. And as such I follow them on both Twitter and Facebook, but at the end of April they put on their Facebook account that one of their biggest songs from 1997, You Showed Me, was 20 years … Continue reading Want to feel old? Well blame the Lightning Seeds!!
24: Legacy bringing back gripping TV! As you have seen from my previous posts I wasn’t too impressed with the re-boot of Prison Break as I thought it was trying to bring back the same cast and situations as we saw 7/8 years ago. This to me was an attempt at trying to drain every dollar out of the franchise. Which was a shame as … Continue reading 24:Legacy – How to jump start a franchise!
Follow my blog with Bloglovin The king of Chicago! (Although some will argue the king of ‘Law and Order’) Well in my opinion he is the guy who has significantly improved my TV viewing over the past couple of years. He is the executive producer of the highly Chicago franchise – Fire, PD, Med and now Justice. I for one am hooked and cannot wait … Continue reading Who is Dick Wolf?
well obviously to tell everyone about Gin Club!! In fact it is the only rule!! When I started the Slimming World diet I needed a new drink which had the least Syns as Guinness had a high amount, so one of the alcoholic drinks with the least syns was Gin. Never tasted it before and was unsure what to expect, as I had always associated … Continue reading The first rule of Gin Club is….
A quiet Bank Holiday Monday, so what is there to do?!?! Go the pictures and watch the best film I have seen of the year, well so far at least. Don’t get me wrong I am a huge Marvel fan and my anticipation of this film was long coming. The first film was superb and set the scene nicely for this film which is roughly … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2 is just superb
At the start of the year my weight was ridiculous so for additional motivation I had decided to sign up for several races with the ultimate goal of at least obtaining a PB at some point during the year, either at the 10k distance or the half marathon distance. My first race was in February with the Mad Dog 10k. I have ran this nearly … Continue reading Back to training after a mini break!
