Introduction

They say to run you need to be a little bit mad. I think to run marathons you need to be totally mad.

My name is Philip Slattery and i have a running addiction. This blog will be my trails and tribulations of all things running.

From my journey to get a constant sub 20 5k (so far I broken it once)

to the journey to run all the marathon majors.

When not running the roads of North Kildare and West Dublin Dublin training I can be found at Castletown parkrun where I am Event Director. If you don’t know what the fuss about parkrun is get yourself to one you will not be sorry.

The sub heading to the site “the run is only part of the story” is due to an old Muhammad Ali quote “The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights” 

As a friend once total a marathon is not 26.2 mile that just the end of it. Its the early morning and late nights training that will or break the race.

Have a look around the site and enjoy the visit. I will try post a new blog at least once  a week.
