With Chicago a distant memory it was good to be taken back to that cool drizzly day in October where I stepped on the the starting line and hours later completed the 26.2 mile adventure in millenium park exhausted but elated that I went to get the job done and job done I did. To receive a copy of the full results of a race where @gomofarah won his first marathon and to be part of the finish list that contain some of the worlds greatest Athletes makes me proud and humble. All those who finished in the 2018 @chimarathon should be proud we did it. Some faster than others but we all completed our adventure🙌 #mychicagomarathon#docksiderunners#running#marathon#chicagomarathon#marathon#projectchicago
A long time ago in a galaxy Far far away..... So tomorrow I take part in the Star Wars Virtual half. It’s all about the smiles tomorrow no pressure just to enjoy myself. Staying to true to my 2019 mantra #lovemyrunning. Although it’s been tough of late I know as we head into spring things will get better running wise but one things for sure I’ll still be smiling😊 #starwars#starwarsvirtualhalf#docksiderunners#halfmarathon #13.1 #smiles#running
Thanks to Merseyrails platform upgrades it means I can’t get to Liverpool on time I ran in solidarity of our awesome Thursday club and ran 9 miles solo. Missed the (s)miles from my @docksiderunners mates but was made up to not have a repeat of the issues I suffered at the Barcelona half🙌. 9 miles easy pace job done. Next run is Saturday morning as I run the Disney’s Star Wars Virtual Half. #9miles#docksiderunners#missmyrunmates#thursdayclub#smiles
Super proud that our club @docksiderunners has been nominated for Club of the Year at the Liverpool Sports & Physical Activity Awards. Such a huge honour and privilege. The awesomeness continued as our group 1 smashed their speed session. So much support and happiness is contained in our group. Pushing themselves and supporting their teammates in the process. I continue to be proud of this group and their efforts and super proud to coach them week in and week out. #docksiderunners#coach#speedtuesday#group1
These 3 hit a sub 1:20 half 🔥🔥🔥
@olly_chad says it best,
"Barcelona was incredible!! Racing alongside Chris and Ben made the race so enjoyable!! The three of us managed sub 1:20:00 Which was our target in the beginning and those two even got PB's with unreal times!! I sadly couldn't complete the PB trio as I was 7 seconds off my PB in Chester last year but was still 4 minutes faster than the Wirral Way half I ran last month!! Honestly couldn't be happier with the result from the whole dockside team every one of us dug deep and absolutely smashed it!!"
Tonight we introduced our group from @docksiderunners to the fartlek run. The lovely art of throwing random sprints into their run. 5 seconds, 10 seconds, crossing to crossing, lamp post to lamp post, it’s entirely up to to you. Tonight our group smashed their run and conquered their speed and fartlek’d till they could not fartlek any more😂. #docksiderunners#speedtuesday#fartlek#runclub#runfamily.
741 metre swim tonight to shake out yesterday’s run and to just unwind. I love a good swim a bit like running it’s a bit of time out my day where I can just relax and de compartmentalise the day. #swim#docksiderunners#bekindtoyourself
This morning was my first post-marathon run, a stretch of the legs in freezing temperatures and the plan was try and get around the hour mark. It started well and after 4 miles we realised that every mile was progressively quicker than the last... with 2 miles left could this be maintained? I pushed on to mile 5 running with @sophiemmilller who despite having 2 hours sleep knew there was something more going on than just getting under an hour! She took over the pacing between mile 5 and 6 (and nearly killed me!) but we finished strong and managed (my first time ever) to run 6 consecutively progressively quicker miles in a race!!! Personal accomplishments aside, this race is awesome! My second time and there's a reason it sells out within a couple of hours... great atmosphere and THAT goody bag (📸 @catjowen11) (this year's highlight a towel with a zip pocket!!) #DocksideRunners#MadDog10k

Great Scott...Fantastic morning at my home race and always fab to welcome members from @docksiderunners down to my neck of the woods. As always the #maddog10k is always a fantastic race and this year’s theme was Back or “Bark” to the future.😂. As I’ve said this year is running for enjoyment and what will be will be. 55:07 was my time and loved seeing fellow runners afterwards sharing their race but smiling with their accomplishments. Proud of all our club members. Next week. I head to Barcelona and a bit of Winter sun and the #barcelonahalfmarathon. 🙌🙌 #docksiderunners#Nikerunning#10k#lovemyrunning#nextweekitstshirtandshortswhoop
Having been rough as a dog (geddit?) for the past few weeks with a virus that just just won’t go away, running has been none existent post Temple Newsome 10 miler🤧😔. However this came today and put a smile on my face as my number for my fourth consecutive Mad Dog 10k entry arrived. #maddog10k#illrunner#manflu#docksiderunners#goawaycough
Tonight my run family @docksiderunners reached a new record. 120 runners of all ages and all abilities turned up in the centre of Liverpool to run their fast. @ali_smith_7311 and I took our group one superstars to our first trip in 2019 to the pier head for some pyramid intervals. All worked hard, working on their high end efforts but also remembering to recover. Couldn’t be more proud as a coach of our group and the club as a whole. We’ve come a long way since the early early days where there would be 16 or so of us running the streets of Liverpool #dockside100#docksiderunners#intervals#runclub#runfamily#liverpool#running#run

YESSSSSS first time we've had more than 100
🔔120 of the nicest people came and ran with our @docksiderunners tonight!!
Genuinely a life goal of mine to organically hit 100 whilst I was volunteering, I remember it being 20! I'm so stoked and thankful to the Pacers now and gone, realbuzz L1, and all the legends that join us week in, week out
Awesome ✊ and little Ruskin is on the mend! What a day!
Our first Thursday Club of the year and amazing vibes as the road to their first races of the year continued. An easy 10k along the prom, as always supporting each other and chatting the run away. Thursday club is about easy relaxed miles where the time doesn’t matter it’s always the (s)miles and friendships and sneaky training🤫 #thursdayclub#docksiderunners#10k#smiles#runfamily
@docksiderunners is back. Back in the pacer top tonight as we welcomed back all our runners from the Christmas break. Our group took on and owned their hills along with new members to the group 1 family. Fast hill sprints recovery hill sprints our group gave fantastic effort as they do every week and always immensely proud of our team. We also reached a record number of attendees as we clock 96 runners in total tonight. A fantastic start to the new season. #docksiderunners#coach#pacer#running#nikerunning#realbuzz#runclub
