    Runs don’t always have to be races

    RUNS don’t always have to be RACES We must have all done it. Had a look on Strava or race times and thought ‘eek! So and so who was slower than me just beat my PB!’ I know I have. Most of us also go into a race with a time in mind and it’s […]

    It all comes down to this…..

    So for the last 18 weeks I have been training for Milton Keynes Marathon – 381 miles ran, an average 3-4 runs a week of anywhere up to 35 miles. Over this time I have got PB’s in all distances from 1 mile to 20 miles, yet there is only one day where it matters. […]

    Paris as a supporter

    This weekend 16 of us boarded a train bound for Paris. For some it was to add another marathon to their growing list of achievements, for one it was to run her first (well done Debbie) and for the rest of us it was to to cheer as loud as we could when we saw […]

    What happened to the fun?

    With the benefit of hindsight, I’ll wager that all the things that end up pear-shaped in life will all have seemed like a good idea at the time. They may have even started with some small innocuous sentence. Here are some classics… Lets just go for a quick drink, yeah just the one… I’ll have […]

    It’s not what you know, it’s who you know…..

    So New Year had come and gone, and in its wake was a number of resolutions – I’m probably very similar to a lot of people in the sense that at New Year, I say New Year, New Me, and make a list of things which for the best part of a couple of weeks […]

    Breaking Psychological Barriers

    It’s often said that the only barrier to progress is in the mind, with the idea that all things can be possible if at first we believe that we can. Nothing is truer or more relevant for runners. Runners often get stuck in a training rut, or pass through oceans of time before hitting a […]

    This week, I’ve been thinking lots about Leighton Fun Runners and what makes us different from other running clubs. One of the things that stood out for me is the amazing team spirit and camaraderie we have built up over the years. Taking a look back at events in the past few months, there’s nothing […]

    The Patriot

    The Patriot (he ain’t half quick). A long time ago in a distant land – filled with concrete cows and roundabouts there was held a race. Those wishing to prove their worth could chose to challenge themselves over either a half or a full marathon – both held over the same course, with a split […]
