Long Run to Work

28th Feb, 2017

Tuesday 28th February 2017 – Today I’m up and on it early. I need to be on a conference call at 8am this morning so tight timescales ensures there is no chance for anything other than tipping out of bed and starting my run in to work if I am going to get there on time.

17th December 2017 – Today has been a day of meetings. But the highlight of the day is my run under the stars from the office to a dinner with the company President. The temperature has dropped right down today and I make the point of wearing shorts to feel the chill on my legs. Even

12th January 2017 – Today is a bit of a logistical conundrum which thankfully my parents are on their way to support. The reports are still that snow is on the horizon but as ever, with the UK, that can be anything from a few flakes to a few feet based on the same forecast. No

A little something for my Dad brings a smile to my face.

8th Jan, 2017

7th January 2017 – There is a tranquil calm about waking up in the countryside. I’ve grown used to the urban noises but when the only sound you can hear is the rain hitting the window there is real peace to be found. I do still find it incredibly strange with no wife or child to wake
