On the Run

Running is Kas’ great passion, and to some extent it’s a passion of Kev’s too. And the girls dabble in a bit every now and then. It keeps us off the streets. Technically, I suppose it keeps us on the streets. Here are a few of the events we’ve visited recently.

We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves…The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, ‘You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.’ The human spirit is indomitable.

Kas somehow got it into her mind that it would be a good-fun idea to run an ultra-marathon in Cumbria to finish off the summer holidays.

Kas entered the 2015 Manchester Marathon. Technically, I suppose, she entered the 2014 Manchester Marathon and then deferred it for a year.

We'd heard from friends who'd done their other events that the Rock 'n' Roll running series were excellent to enter.
Marathon Weekend

Marathon Weekend

A while ago the good lady wife won a place in the Virgin London Marathon for 2014. She failed in the annual ballot but then entered a competition on a bottle of Lucozade Sport and won it.

Sheffield Half 2014 (or not)

On Sunday April 6th 2014 I ran the 33rd annual Sheffield Half Marathon. It turned out to be one of the weirdest days of my life, apparently.
Reading Half 2014

Reading Half 2014

Kas's free entry into the London Marathon that she won came with side entry into a couple of "training" half marathons. This was one of them.
