Two weeks and counting until the I "compete" in the Roding Valley Half Marathon. Nervous about never before having covered the full distance for this event (21km or 13 and a bit miles) I took it upon myself to give it a go in advance. My worst fear on the day
The Roding Valley Half Marathon, my first "competitive" event of 2010 looms closer taking place on 28 February. I've never run further than 10km previously, and to this day still haven’t run past the 12.5km mark, so yet to know if I’m able to last the extra 9.5km that I’ve

With three years to go and the countdown under way, triathlete Tim Don gets geed up about competing in front of a massive home crowd in Hyde Park's Serpentine, London.
I was lucky enough to attend the Building's Herne Hill track day on Wednesday 19 August. Although I was attending on official work business, I felt privileged to be doing so at the legendary Herne Hill Velodrome for this quite excellent event in the construction industry event calendar.
