Cabbage, cabbage everywhere and not a thing to eat. Welcome to the Boston marathon; not the glamorous one with thousands of runners in Massachusetts; but the flat course running through the Lincolnshire countryside.

It's definitely a race for personal bests, flat as a budget pancake and away from the bustle and traffic of a large town or city race.

The Canal Canter - Marathon #12

Searching for my first marathon on 2017 I stumbled across a company called 'It's grim up North running', which it probably is on a cold and murky grey winter morning. The company organises a variety of multi distance events throughout the year, each event usually consisting of a 10K, Half and Full marathons, and an Ultra-Marathon option. 

The canal canter in March started in Kirkstall in Leeds and headed out following the Leeds-Liverpool canal path for 10 miles to Saltaire, before turning back into Kirstall, through the finish area(!), and then into Leeds City centre for 3 miles before returning to the Finish area for good this time.

The wildlife is tough up north!

What can I say, the wildlife is tough up north for a start. I encountered several geese blocking the path at one stage, and no amount of shooing or gesticulations make any difference (not that I could gesticulate much whilst juggling along). They just looked at me like I was the village idiot and made it clear that it was me that going to have to take the detour across the grass.

Cleethorpes Maravan 2 Marathons in 2 Days

Well the plan was 2 marathons in 2 days in Cleethorpes as part of the Maravan festival of running put on by VigilantesRunning.

The marathon consisted of 7 laps around Thorpe park. It was flipping cold and icy at the start. However, the support was brilliant and I got to sample a different cake at the end of each lap which is a major motivational tool.

Unfortunately I never managed the marathon on Sunday; my body and legs were screaming out for a rest. 

A massive thank you to Darren at VigilantesRunning for donating £50 to the the Tigers.

No. 10 on the Joggling 100 Marathon list was the Leicester Marathon on the 23rd October 2016.

I had the opportunity a few days before the race to get interviewed by BBC Radio Leicester where I got to talk about Tigers and Joggling.

It was my quickest Joggling marathon to date and I managed to finish in under 4 1/2 hours for the first time.

Mablethorpe Marathon

I joggled my way through the Mablethorpe Marathon on the 2nd October. The support and organisation was great as always. There were marshals at every corner and junction along the route, and there were loads of water stops along the way (roughly about every 3 miles). I haven't joggled a marathon for a while so I took my time and stopped at all the checkpoints to give my arms a rest and to have a natter with the lovely friendly marshals and supporters. After about 4 hours joggling I was starting to feel it so the last few miles were quite hard. Hopefully this means the next marathon will be easier now.

I now have a rest for 3 weeks until the next marathon (no. 10 on the list) in Leicester on the 23rd October.

Tiger Juggling Balls

Here is a photo of my new Tiger Juggling balls - they're slightly bigger and heavier (180g) than normal thuds so give the arms a good workout. They should go well with various tiger outfits.
