In April this year, Jess Baker and I travelled to Japan for a three and a half week visit that took us everywhere, from Hiroshima to most of the way up Mt Fuji, to a sumo stable in Tokyo and the temples of Kyoto, but the inspiration and purpose of our visit was an incredibly […]Read More Sakura Michi International Nature Run 2014
Octember was really something and I would recommend to anybody that you do this: once a year take something that you love doing, add the challenge of aiming to do it in a way that you never have before – whether by intensity, duration, volume, or venue, and use everything you know to get it […]Read More Great North Walk 100-miler Part 3: It’s About Time
I have learnt a lot about running in the last month – what it means to me, what I want to do better, and bits and pieces of practical knowledge, the kind that you’d expect to gain from running 3 100km races and a 100-miler in 30 days, with or without type 1 diabetes. In […]Read More Great North Walk 100-miler 2013, Central Coast Sufferfest pt. 1

Before reading any further, if you are living with type 1 diabetes, please know that you aren’t allowed to use it as an excuse – for anything. Hitting the ‘Quit’ button because you have type 1 is the biggest mistake you can make. Regardless of what health practitioners might try to tell you, the risks […]Read More Big Red Run, what a brilliant week in the desert by Roger Hanney
Stoked! This is it! 4am alarm clock kicked us out the door in Sydney, early flight to Brisbane, and now we’re in the minivan and taking turns at the steering wheel on the way to Birdsville. After a year of amazing alpine, sub-polar, forest, and desert running around the world in 2012, it’s exciting to […]Read More Simpson Desert, bring it on!
It has been a long time since I wrote here, and it’s going to be just a bit longer yet. Just thought I’d post some fresh pics of what I’ve been up to, because the last 2 months has been MINDBLOWING in the extreme. First, in early October, I went to New Zealand with Hoka […]Read More Grand Slammed? And then some . . . . 2 incredible months.
