Anniversary Treats

Seeing as we hadn’t long got back from Norway, we had a fairly quiet weekend. Saturday I’d brought home a little bit of lurgy with me anyway so had been taking things easy as far as exercise is concerned. There was lots of wind forecast though so Steve was coming to the coast for the...

Isle of Man Coast Path – The Sound to Fleshwick

The last time I was on the Isle of Man I started running around the Coast Path. The Raad Ny Foillan (Way of the Gull) is the island’s premier long-distance path at around 100 miles. Officially opened in 2018 it quickly became one of the most popular walking routes in the British Isles. The path...

Doing it in the Buff

I think you’ll agree with me that it’s better in the buff? So, with that in mind this article is all about doing it in the buff! What’s more, just for your entertainment you I shall illustrate it with plenty of photos of me (a grey, slightly overweight, middle-aged man) in the buff as well....


A quick trot around the Boat Yard loop

I don’t know where that came from, but I had a fairly fast run around the Boat Yard Loop on Sunday morning. Not fast in anyone else’s books or fast by my previous standards, but fairly fast in post-heart attack times. I wasn’t planning on going fast and was feeling a little stiff from my...

A Wonderful Weekend

It’s been a while since I’ve had a weekend that felt fairly packed with activities. It wasn’t quite up to my standards of old and it was all fairly chilled but it was still a good one. Anna probably got some peace and quiet too while I was out! Although the people I’d been out...

New Challenges, New Trails

As you may have read from a previous blog post, I’ve signed up to do ‘The OMM’ later in the year. This could prove to be quite a challenge for me these days. I’m obviously never going to be as fit or fast as I used to be which won’t help. This is not only...


OMM Readiness

OMM… no, I haven’t taken up some sort of Hindu spiritual chanting! I have however been talked into signing up for the Original Mountain Marathon (OMM). I’m not taking full responsibility of course, it’s all Lawrence’s fault. He twisted my arm and badgered me into saying I’d do it with him. It started with a...

Jogging in the Dunes

After a day at work, it was such a lovely evening that I just couldn’t resist a nice easy jog through the dunes. So easy in fact that I even stopped to take some photos.
