You guys know that I love the 5Peaks series, and that they are actually how I first discovered trail races. 5 years ago, my gf Kiri, took me to my first ever race, at Golden Ears! Of course since I thought I was tough, I took on the Enduro course, a 14 km loop.
I absolutely [...]

On the line, I stood beside Jonathan Brownlee and Martin Van Barneveld. The two of them were having a very casual conversation as the race was to begin in less than 2 minutes. If Jonathan was nervous about the race, he sure didn’t show it. Why did these two seem so calm? We have the Pirates [...]

The Sun Run on April 21st was near perfect conditions. A little gusty perhaps, but not too cold and not too warm.
Leading up to the race I was feeling great – I was very satisfied with my training, especially my speed work. I did have a nagging left toe problem (seismoiditis) but I figured it [...]
The Trail Gods meant well and there was hardly a cloud in the sky for this years running of the Enduro. After the initial count I believe there were 28 of us gathering at the Gazebo to participate in the event.
