Fame at last

I was recently ‘interviewed’ online, I think it’s something to do with a gym/sports company called Accuro. Below is the start of their transcript and if you want to read on there is a link at the end of it to the external source which I think then tries to make you aware of gym…

TomTom Golfer 2 Announced

TomTom’s latest edition was announced yesterday. The Golfer 2. No doubt in America it will be called The Swing. (Those knowledgeable about the Runner2/Spark naming history will appreciate the deep level of wit). When I heard rumours of a new TomTom earlier in the month I was very (very) excited, hoping we would see the TomTom…

Shapewear socks – something a little different

I have been looking some more recently into performance socks and performance wear in general. Specifically revisiting 2XU and CompresSport. Whilst still good, those products don’t seem to have changed too much over the last few years. By accident I stumbled across strammermax.com. They have a range of products from upper posture based tops to…

Fakes and the5krunner

I had a call from Garmin today saying that some Irish chap had been pretending to work for the5krunner blog and that ‘could he have a 920XT to review please?’. I’m sure he planned to return it. Aspiring gadget thieves should note that it is actually fairly hard for most people to get scarce PR…

New British Flag without Scotland

I’ve just bought some stickers for my bike and helmet. namesonframes.co.uk do them but I bought mine from somewhere else (more expensive, sigh). It’s probably a bit naff but my rationale was that maybe it might make my bike less stealable. Well that and the fact that it is held together by electricians insulating tape! Then…

Sub 20 5k running

parkrun founder Paul Sinton Hewitt deserves what?

Please vote using the poll below. Well, Paul Sinton-Hewitt (PSH) gets my vote for an OBE or maybe even a knighthood. Certainly a candidate for the ‘unsung hero’ award in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award 2014 when that award opens for nominations later in the year. In 2004, 13 people ambled around…
