Weekly Photo Challenge: Jubilant

This weeks photo challenge is Jubilant, a celebration or achievement. I look back to 2010 with this challenge and when my team Leeds United were promoted from League One back to the championship on the final day of the season on the 8th May 2010.

Seems like a long time ago now.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

When i think of the Earth for this weeks challenge, i sit and think about all the great places in the world.

Empire State Building. Aug 2011

5 years ago i went to well you guessed it, New York City, the city that doesnt sleep, such a fantastic city. This was taken from the Rockerfeller centre whilst on a trip with university back in 2011. I always had a dream of visiting the city after seeing the skylines in movies during my youth. 

Run Run Run

On Saturday morning I took part in my first ever parkrun event with my good friend and colleague Kris. Venue was Roundhay Park in Leeds.

As I am at the start of my training for both the Leeds and York 10k run events for British Lung Foundation & Macmillan it was the perfect start especially with some hills thrown in.

A good time of 36:35 in my eyes in terms of fitness, i spoke a while ago in a post about fitness goals especially being a asthma sufferer and at times it can be a struggle, as you can see the first 1km was my fastest, slowed down after the second hill, not my fastest 5k run but will keep at it.

I hope to give this route another go as there is only 8 and half weeks now until the first run.

Going by this time i would be on course to meet my target of beating my 10k PB of 1:15:58 by a few minutes, as the course is flat it is looking good.
