Bushy Park 10K in August - As part of my training for my next Half-Marathon, I have to run a couple of 10K races and I decided to run the Bushy Park 10K again. I already ran it last January and I accomplished the feat of establishing a new PB despite the cold and the mud, [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/08/09/bushy-park-10k-in-august/

Writing about running - It has now been six months since I write twice a week about running. This is my 57th article and I think it's a good time to reflect back on the past semester. I know you're curious about my writing process - in fact, I'm pretty sure you don't give a toss [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/08/05/writing-about-running/

Beer Mile World Classic - I've been talking about it for a long time, but now I've finally ran a Beer Mile! And no less than the Beer Mile World Classic with the world elite of the discipline! The rules are simple: drink 1 beer then run 1 lap and repeat 4 times! If you throw up or don't finish one [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/08/02/beer-mile-world-classic/

Test: Vivo Barefoot Primus - On my way towards barefoot running, I'm willing to try a lot of different kinds of minimalistic shoes. My latest finding is the Primus, by UK company Vivobarefoot. I've immediately been seduced by the looks of this shoe but also because the company says it 'lets your feet do their [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/29/test-vivo-barefoot-primus/

My best running memories - August 2015, A Guarda, Galicia, Spain. It had been just over a month since I began running. I was still hating it, but I was very motivated by all the weight I had to lose and also by my very recent read of 'Born to run'. This book had a lot of [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/26/my-best-running-memories/

Going to the gym - One of my priorities when running is to remain injury-free. It's only been a year since I've been running seriously, but so far I've managed to increase my weekly mileage without hurting my good self. It came to my knowledge that if I wanted to carry on like that I [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/22/going-to-the-gym/

More running with Serpentine - Like I mentioned recently, I just joined the Serpentine Running Club. I already had a hills session with the club and despite it being tough, I went back last week and I'll certainly go back this Saturday. It's not that I love running hills, but I'm not as good at it than I though [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/19/more-running-with-serpentine/

Shameless advertising: Anaïs Photography - Not so long ago, I had a photo shooting session with a professional photographer and I have to admit that I'm pretty impressed. First of all, the pictures were taken in Greenwich Park, which is my favourite running place. But she also managed to make it look like I'm not [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/15/shameless-advertising-anais-photography/

Serpentine & hills - There we are, I gave in to Lanky Pole's pressure and I finally joined the Serpentine Running Club. It is a big club, with almost 2,000 members. It's a bit expensive to join on the first year, but I've heard it's worth it. I have to admit, after the first [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/12/serpentine-hills/

Sonic the freak - It's been a long time since my last rant but I know you love'em, so here's a freebie that I'm sure you'll enjoy. How effing freakish is Sonic the Hedgehog? When I was younger, I owned (and I still own) a Sega Mega Drive II (Genesis II for the odd [...] - http://www.frenchblokeruns.com/en/2016/07/08/sonic-the-freak/
