Please do spare a thought for the legendary Norwegian marathon runner who passed away earlier this week after a 5 year battle against cancer.
An orbituary will be published soon.
Today we had beautiful weather, but web-sources told of high radiation. Still, people had a wonderful time at our second event at Lake Saiko, the Spring 5k! Thank you very much for coming out, and many thanks to all the people who helped!
Hope to run with everybody again…Continue

Pleasing run yesterday. Competed in the 10k event as part of the Adidas MBC marathon festival in Misari just outside Seoul-sorry no pictures as I forgot my camera.

And yours truly finished 5th in 35:48, so a good sign of how things are at this stage of my preparation for the Gold Coast marathon in 12 weeks.
In spite of some navigation problems due to the fact that team leader James (Yorkshire Madman) Midgley forgot his maps we finished in just under 4:30h, achieving our target for the 40k around Yamanote Line in spite of running a full marathon (42:22 according to my Garmin).
Thanks to all of the people who watched us on Ustream - check out the videos (link above) if you…Continue
A beautiful day at the Path of Philosophy, and a lot of good people who donated for the earthquake victims. A young couple of runners who I had handed my flyer came running after me to hand me a 1000Yen note, and a group of foreigners celebrating under the cherry trees donated 500Yen each.
May go for a second run later…Continue
