    It has been months, maybe years since I last wore shoes with a heel. I have been good, I have ensured I have only trodden on the path of no heel-toe drop. Not one inch of increased height have I succumbed to... Until, that is, last week. I am not sure how it happened. I looked at my flat, no heel winter boots. They were warm, waterproof, black, shiny; they were comfortable and a style I am...

    So let me introduce you to my new winter running friends. They are warm and soft. They love to run the trails and despite a few little teething troubles, we have worked throughour issues and now I honestly think we have a solid friendship going. My friends are called the "Smithie's". All will become apparent soon. I needed something for the winter. The Five Fingers have a fatal flaw in their...

    So my running regime lately has been as erratic as the weather. Snow one minute, warm sunshine, then rain, then cold. The last few months have been so changeable that I haven't yet manage to sort out a running routine. My plans for running once a day have been scuppered by colds, kids and general grown-up stuff that has left me frustrated and frankly a little pee'd off. Okay, so I am not the...

    I was going to go for the title "So what's the Swedish for "redemption""?", but that had too many biblical connotations and frankly the cold meds and wine is not a combination to start a theological discussion. Or maybe it is? No, wait.. it isn't..) Sorry it's taken so long to get the race report up, but shortly after the race, I ended up being "Sick Mamma" and then "sick Mamma with sick...

    So my last race was a disaster. I think we can safely say that in the realms of "what not to do.." in a race situation, I pretty much hit every button So, when the dust has settled (metaphorically speaking; I don't think I was going quick enough to leave any dust in my wake), what do you do? Well, most people will look at their training schedule. Contemplate their mistakes. Evaluate their...

    You know there are days when you get up and you feel a bit off and then the day just gets worse? Well on Saturday, I had one of those days. Unfortunately, the fact I had planned to run 22.5K up a mountain over technical trail didn't improve matters either. Not that it would. I mean, what sort of insane person thinks that running a race like that is going to improve your day. Perhaps rolling over...

    [This is actually a post from my blog, however it is such a ludicrous story I thought you guys might enjoy it too] Give a runner an internet connection and a valid credit card. Why?? If you do then the said runner will get a big shock when he/she opens their in-box the next morning to find race registration confirmations.. I unfortunately say this from experience. Actually, experience...

    Okay this is a huge blog entry. How can so much inane drivel come from such a small person? Make sure you have a milky drink, slippers and the bed turned down, as it's sure to send you to sleep. Not much of a salesperson am i? That was a really LONG tea-break I admit; this race report is turning into one of those assignments you had at school. You know you REALLY had to do it, and yet...

    Okay firstly, is it wrong to just post my normal blog here? There is only SO much semi-intelligent thought I can manage in a certain time. To have to write a separate blog entry for BRS - I mean the Internet can only stand so much. Let's not push it people! So here is my first ever (hijacked from blogspot) BRS blog entry! The title pretty much sums up this post. (And YES Larry I know this race...
