Our beautiful bull terrier Kitty died last Thursday. I hate that sentence. She meant more to me than words can tell. I just want to pin this to the page before memories slip away. Even they aren’t enough. She saved me, but that’s not it. That’s a selfish reason to love anything. She was cheeky, […]Read More Kitty the Bull Terrier. She will be so missed.

By restricting caloric intake and managing macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate, fats etc) within a particular ratio, the practitioner (you, if you’re giving this a go) […]Read More Fasting Mimicking Diet, type 1 diabetes & endurance running
Continued from Part 1 (please support the awesome positive health impacts of the Telethon Type 1 Family Centre here. Thanks heaps 😊 ) Asking around about how best to prepare for Hardrock some months ago, I’d got a load of helpful advice from some very experienced runners who know the course backwards.

Thank you Andy Hewat, we were battling together even if separated. Thank you Hailey Lauren, without your unwavering get-it-done attitude I think I would have broken. Thank you Dad, more than any other this one was for you. Prologue. When people unfamiliar with trail ultramarathon ask what you do and you reply, “I run ultra”, […]Read More Ultra-Trail Andorra and other things I will remember forever. By Roger Hanney
(Continued from https://runeatsleeprun.com/2017/03/16/coast2kosci-2016-part-1-slow-beginnings/) Heading into the night stage (obviously a stage measured by light that started in different places for everyone – if, for example, you’re Andrew Tuckey, the night stage might not start until you’re back at your hotel reflecting on a new course record and the quantum anomalies you created folding space on […]Read More Coast2Kosci 2016 part 2: when you don’t want it bad enough to die trying just yet and go to sleep in the back of a comfy van instead.

For some it’s redemption, for others it’s a target time, it’s a big end to a big year, or […]Read More Coast2Kosci 2016 part 1: Slow beginnings
Heading out of Courmayeur, the feelings I had were a turbulent mix of elation and despair. On the one hand, I was still in the game. I just had to keep getting to the next checkpoint, the next summit, the next valley, but on the other hand there was still 90km to go and the […]Read More Ultimate Bear Fight: UTMB 2016 part 2, the UTMBening
