    Man cannot run on cake alone……he also needs Gin!

    A week in the life of…..Captain Dan… Thursday I was moping around the house, so Vicky suggested I go for a run, then it started raining! Another hour passed and I made it to the bedroom to change! Eventually I brought enough enthusiasm to the party to get out the door and drove to Long […]

    Team Parkrun day

    Team parkrun dropped in this weekend and LFR were in huge numbers to assist. This is where a national lottery funded athlete visits parkrun to give something back to the community, encourages, answers questions and tail runs. We were luck enough to have Zoe Shipperley, a silver medalist for England Hockey at the 2014 Commonwealth […]

    Rushmere with a buggy!

    You may think I’m a little mad but since Vicky bought us a running buggy for Christmas, to enable us to go out running with Edison, I’ve been taking on new challenges including Rushmere Parkrun. Today was supposed to be a gentle stretch before Bearbrook 10k but with Arriana away I could go flat out! […]

    Beds AAA 10k

    A gaggle of LFR’s hit Bedford by storm on Friday night just before the first rain storm of summer! It was the county 10k championship. Great fun was had by all, with a handful of hugely awesome pb’s, Chris, Will, Matt and myself. It was great to see that LBAC do actually race on Friday […]

    Drunk in 8 minutes aka the beer mile

    Yes it’s that time of year again when the local Coop sells out of 4 packs of 5% cans. So for those who have never done it – oh buy 4 cans of 330ml alcoholic beverages. Down one then run 400m, repeat 4 times without being sick (or you get a forfeit lap 🤢) So […]

  • Silverstone 10K by Kevin Hare

    As a fan of motor racing, when Silverstone 10K got advertised it was a run which I definitely wanted to participate in.  To run round the home of British Motor Racing…you don’t get many chances to do that.  On the day it was exciting as you drive through the gates and park in Silverstone and […]

  • MK Marathon Ambassador 2018 (Part Two)

    Almost two months ago I told you all about my grand plans – ambitious, but grand – for the MK Marathon.  I’m an Ambassador this year. An event I love. I had to get stuck in. At that time it was just under 11 weeks to go.  We’re now at under three weeks to go […]

    Multisport For Running Longevity

    What do people like about running? Being outside. With your friends. Having a natter. Feeling the endorphins kick in. Exploring somewhere stunning. The satisfaction of knowing you’ve pushed yourself a bit perhaps? Whatever the reason it sucks when you can’t do that. Running is great as long as we can continue to do it. It’s […]

  • My First Half Marathon by Kevin Hare

    I wanted to set myself a challenge to finish 2017, so I booked the MK Winter Half Marathon on 10th December 2017.  It would be the longest distance I would have run.  My training was really over short distances of 6 miles leading up to it and personally I have run 10 miles on my […]
