Walsall 10K

September 21, 2014

New Personal Best in the Walsall 10K this morning. Another record in what’s been a very pleasant month, slicing a good six or seven minutes off my previous best.

Goodness me I’m enjoying this running lark.


Running for Money

September 7, 2014

Thank you to everyone who’s supported me by sponsoring my 10K run this morning. The weather was good, the terrain hilly and I had a very pleasant run with the others who turned out for the 5K and 10K. Little brother Jimm Rennie joined in as well, and being much faster than me was waiting at the finish to cheer me on.

Running in circles

July 29, 2014

Last year, I announced I had begun running on Saturday mornings in Walsall Arboretum. Parkrun has since become a regular feature of my weekends. To date I’ve clocked up 44 runs, covering a total of 220km which otherwise wouldn’t have happened.

June 8, 2014
