"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." -Theodore Roosevelt

Sub forties and wallpaper paste!

I've been a bit lazy not blogging, but I've been really, really busy, which I see as a good thing!

My life at the moment consists of running, football, and friends, with a dash of DIY thrown in. Which, if you ask me, is a brilliant little cocktail!!

The Mersey Tunnel 10km a few weeks ago went brilliantly - it was two training sessions after joining Liverpool Running Club and I was aiming for sub 40 minutes. I managed sub 40, and more - my official time was 39:27 which I was ecstatic about, and it was a PB.

Two weeks later I and quite a few of the running club group ran the Penny Lane 10k. This was orgnaised by the Penny Lane Striders and was a great course along (Otterspool) promenade and into a park which was a little trail like in conditions given the heavy rain that had poured down the day before. It was a race with plenty of club runners and was of a very good standard. I was happy with another sub 40 minute 10k; 39:48 my time, not bad considering this was a tough course.

Away from the running side of things I'm finally decorating my final spare room! it's not quite finished, as with everything else when it comes to my house, complications have arisen - dodgy air vents, wonky electricity plugs, etc. Give it another month of Sundays and it will be sorted ;)

Until next time, asta la vista!
