I have been a runner for about a year and would still class myself as a beginner. Like countless others, running has not come easily and has required a lot of hard work and gritted determination. In truth I was never in love with the idea of running but an opportunity presented itself, the stars aligned and all came together to turn me into a total running nut, (see ‘my running journey so far’ to find out more). Needless to say running has now become an obsession and I am forever trying to get better at it!
So being the geek I am, I have read, researched and discussed all things running. Sometimes out of interest and sometimes because I am struggling and I am looking for ways to overcome the issues that I am experiencing. Along the way I have found out some pretty interesting stuff which has helped me and could potentially help other new running nuts.
Therefore, the purpose of this blog is for you to find a catalogue of information that I have found useful. More specifically, it will detail how I have used and interpreted it to try and overcome my issues. This blog will also cover my running journey including all the highs and lows and some of my ‘inner chat’ so that it may help some of you guys to see your not the only ones going through it.
Equally, what you guys are reading, discussing and finding useful is relevant to me and other running nuts and so I am keen for you to share what you are learning and any hints and tips that may be of use.
Therefore, I am hoping this blog will provide a common platform and develop a community of running nuts to share information, hints and tips. In the process we may be able to develop our running abilities, motivate and inspire ourselves and other running nuts everywhere.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I sincerely hope this blog works and is of use to you all. If you have any feedback, it would be really welcomed after all this site is for all of you total running nuts not just me!
If you would like me to research a topic on your behalf and feed back to you and others please let me know.
Finally, if you would like to publish a post on this site credited to you then please feel free to get in touch and I would be happy to chat through with you.
