2019 Tokyo Marathon – Race Report

Some races leave you dejected and send you back to the drawing board, and other races are there to be destroyed. Tokyo was a bit of both. In a similar theme to the previous marathon (The one in Chicago in October 2018), there are pros and cons, there are ‘silver linings’ and ‘what ifs’. IContinue reading “2019 Tokyo Marathon – Race Report”

2018 Chicago Marathon – Race Report

Beyond the beaming post-race photos and posing with the medal with the stunning backdrop of the biggest city in the state of Illinois, there was frustration and a hint of disappointment.

TheContinue reading “2018 Dubai Marathon: You have 21 weeks to train and smash it!”

2016 Seville Marathon – Race Report

Since my second or third full marathon, I started an unorthodox and not very recommended habit of running a solo full marathon ahead of a full race. This is as some sort of physical and physiological preparation for the big race, and since I am currently training for the London Marathon, which is on AprilContinue reading “2016 Seville Marathon – Race Report”
