  • Here I am, running my twelfth and final half marathon of the year in Orlando, FL. My time was 2h35, my worst of the year, but after spending a vacation with The Mouse and all that comes with it, it was all I had. A great race in a lovely city with some great people. It’s been a great year and in no small part, enabled by Dietbet.

  • Me at the Oakhaven Hospice New Forest Half Marathon last weekend. A trail run, my very first at this distance and a time of 2h20. Not bad at all. Beautiful scenery in Hampshire, UK and all the money going to the hospice charity. That’s all the good news, the bad news is that while I’m nowhere close to my weight when I first started Dietbet back in January, I have put 9 pounds back on.... I feel another New Year transformer is a definite possibility, particularly since I visit Orlando and The Mouse later this month.....

  • Me an two of the pacers from the Basingstoke half marathon, last week. An extremely hilly course that I completed in 2h22. I was very happy with that, particularly since I ran the last 5k in 28:56 which is pretty quick for me. That’s 10 HM’s this year and just two more to go.

Hello fellow runners. It’s a little quiet in here, but if anyone’s interested, I’ve just started a XXXbet double. After a month off and trying to control my weight, I’ve decided to do a quick Kickstarter and a RunBet to go alongside it. The RunBet require 4x30 minute runs over 4 weeks. I should be ok - it means an extra weekly run, so I just have to fit it in. It should also help the Kickstarter too. I have another Half Marathon this weekend. My next post will be a report from my run at Clacton on the Essex coast.

  • Me approaching the finish line at the Leamington Spa half marathon on Sunday with a time of 2h28. It was over 80F again - hard work! A double celebration is due having just successfully completed my first Transformer too!

  • This is me at yesterday's St Albans Half Marathon, my sixth of the year. A respectable (for me anyway) 2h20 given that it was relentlessly hilly. Very hard work, but all the more rewarding for it. They gave out ice lollies and flap jacks at the end, but given that I burned over 2200 calories according to my fitness tracker, I hope you'll forgive me for eating them!

Ok, this getting silly now..... I just ran a 5k PB in 28:14 beating a four year old record by 20 seconds! Since starting DietBet and losing 32lbs so far since Jan 1, I’ve set new personal records at 1k, 1 Mile ( 3 times in a week!), 3k, 5k, 10k, 10miles (4 times) and the half marathon (3 times). Absolutely incredible! This is exactly why I started Dietbet: Use it as a competive incentive to improve my running. I am very, very pleased with it!
