Eight weeks ago today I invited a total stranger to take a sharp instrument to my abdomen, open me up and poke some of me back in. He pushed a piece of nylon mesh in as well to give the repair some oomph, and then he sutured me back together. Over the next few weeks ...

It’s a Saturday morning, the sun is shining…… somewhere, but not in Edinburgh, here it was warm but cloudy, a good day for your parkrun, even the traditional wind that usually disturbs the hairstyle in Edinburgh was in mute mode, windswept and interesting was out, gentle breeze was in.

Hello, the Valencia 1/2M is later this afternoon. Instead of my usual parkrun journey this morning, it’s a catch up on yesterday’s pre-breakfast amble.

I’ve landed my creaky old carcass in Valencia for the 2018, IAAF 1/2 Marathon World Championship. This promotional housing was in the metro station at the airport.
