My Marathons in a Nutshell – Jenni Morris

Next up in my series on bite size reviews, the 12 marathons from UKRUNCHAT’s and South London’s very own Jenni Morris. 1: London 2014: Absolutely epic.  I loved it.  The crowds were amazing, I had a sore hand in the first half from so many high fives.  It’s an amazing atmosphere and I loved it. …

Well that escalated quickly – the story of a week or so

2017 (my 5th) was always going to be my greatest running year to date. I had already booked Comrades, my life A-race as I couldn’t get into the Berlin Wall 100 Miler and planned to prep with a marathon a month. Well, I say “planned” but it was more organic than that. I chose a…

Race Review: The Go Dad Run 10K Southwark Park

This Father’s Day the original plan was to run the Shrewsbury Half, the UKRUNCHAT organised and marshalled event somewhere in the Midlands. But, after the ankle injury sustained three weeks ago I had to cancel that trip and rest up. Sleeping in a boot, exercises, pain killers and NO running at all since the London…

The Last Post (of the year)

So is this where it all begins? I should say that I do still have two races and a virtual to go, so that is a 5k, 6k and 10k for a clutch of Christmas related medals, but I should more so say that I have registered for all of my races for 2015 already,…

2014 Race Calendar To Do

I do not want to waste money on races that I have not taken part in. Last year I had 11 DNSs, including the Les Hutton deferral because of weather. So 10 of the 31 races from 2013 I did not finish and I feel bad about that. This year I want to be more…

I haven’t raced this year. It is such a shame, and it has been getting me down. First, I had the flu which took out the first two weeks of January including the Bromley 10K. Then the Les Whitton 10 Miler in Dartford, Kent was cancelled due to weather. I bailed on the next two…

1.So I have a cold. 2. I double booked myself on the 3rd March next year for the Silverstone Half and the Paris Half. I know which one I’d rather run. 3. I am going to Dublin this weekend but I am not running. There is actually a chance none of us are running. If…

Inspiration… I always admit that my reason for running is purely selfish. I run because I want to achieve, I want to be well, I want to challenge myself. I would ordinarily profess that, as my motivation is self-centred that I do not find inspiration in others and, for the most part this is true. Athletes…
