Relevance: 77%      Posted on: 20 January 2012

Friday morning and I had a good nights sleep - which is perfect as it's very rare to get a good sleep the night before the race - especially when the alarm is going to wake us up at 3:30am! We took the campervan straight down to the beach this…

Christchurch Saturday Runners

Saturday mornings pretty much mean one thing in the Rowe household - parkrun.  Free 5k timed runs in parks all around the UK (and now well beyond).  Well, we're currently in New Zealand and there's no parkrun here (yet - it is coming though...). Whilst we've been here we've managed…

It's that time of year again - where I post a quick summary of what I've been up to running and triathlon wise this year past year.  This is primarily for myself to look back on years to come but may be of interest to others! After the main 'highlight'…

A couple of weeks ago Sharon told me that we'd been invited round to Ann and Ray's house for dinner.  Ann and Ray are the event directors at Bushy parkrun and we've known them for years.  A couple of years ago I even went on holiday to Lanzarote with them…

The short report... I did an ironman distance triathlon called Challenge Wanaka in New Zealand.  It was an amazing race.  It was hard work.  I think I did pretty well.  The end. The long report... Before I get on with it I wrote a number of posts in the week…

On Sunday 22nd April 2012 I will be running the London Marathon for the second time.  This will be my third 'standalone' marathon.  When I say 'standalone' I mean that I have run other marathons, but as part of Ironman distance triathlons (i.e., after a 2.4 mile swim and 112…

The Outlaw Triathlon 2012
