Another effect of barefoot running..

How do my feet hold up running barefoot?

Following up with an Half marathon

Oh dear. So yesterday I did an unplanned visit to Park Run and a quick 5km sprint (errr – quick for ME that is). I have had the Fremantle Half Marathon on my calendar for about a month now.  I have not planned for it or trained for it, as the marathon was my last … Continue reading

First Park Run & Technology test

Good evening. Well today I ran my first 5km Park Run.  I think I have previously mentioned that I still have not worked out what kind of runner I am, and or what distance best suits me. I have run a number of 10km runs, and usually make the top 10 females and a 3rd … Continue reading
