"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

Bye for now

The last 8 months have been a very long 8 months for me, mainly due to my running injury, but also because of my job.

My injury continues to cause me pain,  and stop me from running. For that reason, I am taking a break from this blog, and all things social media.

I am not doing this for sympathy or attention, but because reading about other runners and their adventures only adds to the despondency, frustration and frankly, despair that I feel.

I hope to be back one day, I don't even care about being back stronger, just, to be back, pain free.

I wish anyone who reads my blog all the best for 2014, and I hope you stay happy and healthy.



  1. Very sorry to hear this as I appreciate your presence on social media, but I understand. Seriously, best of luck for both the injury and the job, and I hope we see you back soon! x

  2. Oh no, this sucks. Don't be a complete stranger, I'll miss you! Maybe concentrate on learning something new, like swimming or kayaking? Perfect time to set a new goal...
