A little bit of Unthank Road atop a Welsh Brynn and why I didn’t run the Swansea Half Marathon

I’ve just signed up to Run Norwich 2017

Running into trouble with an X-rated blog…apparently

They say you turn into your parents eventually.But if that’s the case, my transformation is a pretty circuitous route – my dad preferred darts to running, five pints instead of 5ks, the Sun on Sunday instead of the Sunday Times…… Continue Reading →

No cross training for me – but I can tell you where thieves are stealing bikes from in Norwich
