So you may have seen on my social media that boyo number 2 has arrived!  I am officially a father of two! Unbelievable to say that, I don't feel old or mature enough!

I wrote a post about what I learnt on the weekend of the birth you can read it here.

I was asked recently about the elevation of the London Marathon, so I've put some numbers and graphs to support my response.

Here are my last minute, not so obvious tips for your big day!

1. The Expo is great, absolutely great but get in and get out! It’s energy zapping, go back and enjoy the expo on a year you are not running! No talk is going to make a difference the day before!

2. Pack Fl...

After yesterday's Cardiff parkrun there was a lot of chat about how hard the "alternative alternate" course was - there are 3 courses we use at Cardiff parkrun, and yesterday's was at Llandaff Fields - it's the course we use the most infrequent!
