One Step Beyond – A Review

As I began to gravitate away from traditional road running for the more off-road variety of runs in 2010-11, one thing I very quickly became aware of is that our neighbours across the pacific have a massive, embracing and exciting culture of trail running going on. And while we have fantastic races and runners here […]

Maintaining the Momentum

Woops! Forgot to set my alarm this morning. Thank goodness for the Twins and Julia’s internal clock whereby at any point during the night, after 8 months of getting up regularly for our munchkins, she can pinpoint the exact hour and minute of the night… and do so without waking up! So off to work […]

Running to Extremes – A Review

Having read Lisa Tamati’s first novel, Running Hot, I couldn’t wait to immerse myself into her follow up novel Running to Extremes. Although, it was with a little trepidation. You see, I rank Tamati’s Running Hot as one of my all time favourite running novels, alongside and equal to Christopher McDougal’s Born to Run, and Dean […]

What’s coming…

With the launch of Running Against Time late last year, things have been busy. Not to forget the addition of two wonderful little munchkins to our family! But things are about to get busier, much busier! For 2013 I have big plans, in running, and writing. And I intend to bring everyone here along for […]

How can you write an autobiography about running? You haven’t done anything!

It’s a fascinating experience to go through as an author; completing a book and sending it out there into the world, for other people to read, experience, criticise, and talk about. Just to have people purchase my novel is a huge complement, but to have them read and react to it. Well, money can’t buy […]

The power of music – and other musings…

Funny how music can transport you miles away and years in time apart. Listening to Silversun Pickups the other day I was there reading once more, Pat Farmer’s Pole to Pole. Better yet, I was there running beside Pat again, through South America. I was right there beside him, support vehicle beside us, middle of […]

Drugs in sport

In recent days a ‘major investigation’ into drugs and organised crime in Australian sport has released a damning report that categorically proves that they go hand in hand. The media is ‘shocked’ but is the public? Are we shocked by this news? I for one am not. I must admit, however, that I’m a little […]

Eat & Run – A review

Am I just jaded because of my injury and the fact I haven’t been able to run for months? And even before that, because I couldn’t run like I used to run pre-Fuji and pre-permanent degenerative injury? Or did Scott Jurek’s novel lack something? Or am I just jealous of the fact he has such […]

Does Running = Injury?

I was at the Hares & Hounds Ultra race in the Queensland Glasshouse Mountains on Sunday. No, I wasn’t running. Not even in the 5km event. Why? Because I’m injured. So I was there purely to volunteer and sell a few copies of my book. While there, I got talking with quite a few other […]

Learning something new as an adult?

I’ve just stared skipping. A new challenge for 2013. Why? Because I’ve heard it’s good for running barefoot. It helps strengthen the feet and ankles. Something I’m in dire need of! I’ve also started some new stretching that I hope will help… but that’s another story… Little did I know how hard it would be! […]

A New Year a New You?

5 Steps to achieving your New Years Resolutions OK, we all do it. That calendar turns over and it’s like we’ve heard the starting gun go off to a new race. We’re hell bent on undoing the sins of the past year or years, and we’re going to do it as fast as we can! […]

This site is to promote my writing, some of which has been published, some of which has not, and in particular, my forthcoming book about Project Fuji. In addition to this, I am launching […]
