Lake to Lagoon

Update: Placed 14th. A great event. I ran well enough, just under 37mins. I’ll find out my place later in the week, but definitely top-20, out of 1300 or so runners. My cheer squad did a good job of encouraging me towards the end. I still can’t believe it’s a free event. Found myself in […]

Goodbye good and faithful friends

Sadly, I can’t just keep accumulating my old running shoes in the cupboard forever. Today I said goodbye to 8 pairs that have collectively carried me hundreds of exhausting kilometers. I now have just 4 pairs of running shoes in active rotation, and that should be enough.
