I spend too much time looking at running shoes. If I have 10 mins, I will go to the usual websites and look for new deals, colours or styles. I’m a Nike man through and through.

This was going to be a post about motivation and races. This was brought on by missing another run following one to many beers on Saturday night. It was a good night, well-spent outside in a courtyard with family and friends in Poland. A good time was had by all. The late finish, sleeping in and headache put pay to the Sunday morning run.
