Our Weekend Triathlon
This year Dean and I are training up for triathlons. Different triathlons. His is an Ironman in July, mine, a half iron distance in June. Along the way we're doing a number of events under the guise of training, but really we just quite like doing events. I...

Event Review : Reading Half Marathon

Event Review : Sunset to Sunrise Ultra
I've got a lot of pending event reviews that I fully intend to publish in the next few weeks but I thought I'd start with this one as not only is it one of the more recent but it is also my engagement story, which I'd like to share with you in one of my mor...

Vik's Picks : January 2017
It's that time again. The time when I share with you the things that have made a difference, I've been impressed by or that I just plain like in the past month. I got this fantastic Momentum 360 reflective Jacket by Mountain Warehouse for Christmas and have...

Surrey Fitness Scene : Gravity Fit
Those of you who have followed this blog for a while may remember that I started the "fitness scene" thread of posts in response to the vast number of posts I would see elsewhere about fun exercise classes and studios that seemed to be constantly unveiled i...
