A sad day in our running community

Yesterday, while running a Half Marathon a friend and mentor of mine collapsed and died.

Barry was a great guy and will be sorrily missed.

I spoke to him just prior to the start of his race and wished him a good run.

I ran the 5 km event that started after the Half Marathon and I managed to PB by about five minutes - I know that Barry would have been happy for me, as he always asked how my running was going and how my last race went.

It still doesn't seem real, but I know that he died doing what he loved and with friends at his side - hopefully this is the way that we all will go.

Rest in Peace.

Do you know where my mojo has gone?

Okay, two weeks of holidays has officially killed my training plan.

I am actually looking forward to going back to work, in order to get back to the gym and training.

While being off has been nice, I slept in way too much and ate too much crap!

Back on track next week...
