this is a blog that will chart the ups and downs of my running career. having bumbled my way through various road races and (god knows how) two marathons to date, my latest attempt to further myself is an excursion into the world of fell running. I got a shiny new pair of trainers with some money my gran gave me for christmas and that was enough to set me on the road to enlightenment.
the following posts detail both my midweek training runs on the roads in and around Stockport, and the odd fell race that brings me crashing back down to earth. we hope to move to New Mills in the near future (if the kindly souls at the mortgage company don't take too keen an interest in our finances) so there will be plenty of chance for us to get on the fells as a family and get some real training done!
