2018 Australia Day Ultra Marathon Ultra #8 Saturday, 20 January 2017 I’ve been carrying a hamstring injury all through 2017 and although it’s much better since getting platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections directly into the tendon, it’s still not 100% so I’ve not been able to run on any surfaces other than flat roads/paths for […]

Master of none

2014 Bunbury Three Waters Running Festival 50km Ultra-marathon #1 Sunday, 13 April 2014 Hey, uh, hi. Can you help me? What’s your name? “My name’s Roosevelt E. Roosevelt.” Roosevelt, what town are you stationed in?. “I’m stationed in Poontang.” Well, thank you, Roosevelt. What’s the weather like out there? “It’s hot. Damn hot! Real hot! […]
