This is my 100th post on this blog. It’s had its ups and downs – from starting as a summary of my training for an event that I ended up not doing and then turning into a hybrid running/hiking/diving/adventure blog, with a heavy emphasis on whatever activity I happen to be doing most of at the moment. I’ve had some very consistent months of posting, and then went quiet for most of November and December last year.
I am trying to do better now, and I hope that some of you are appreciating the more consistent posting schedule, which is currently based around a general topic on a Tuesday and a kit review on a Thursday. I’m not doing the weekly roundups any more, but I may do a monthly one if I think there’s enough material really worth sharing.
If you are new to the blog, this seems like an opportunity to highlight a few of my most popular posts, or just my personal favourites, that may interest you, and you’ll find a list below.
Whether you are new, or a long-standing reader, the best thing you could to do support me is to help spread the word. Like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, follow the blog on WordPress, and above all if you enjoy a post please consider sharing it, to help me spread the word.
So, amuse yourself by looking through some of these old posts from the last year:
- WAA 20L MDS Ultrabag review – still one of the posts that draws in some of the most new visitors through Google searches
- Five reasons to do an Ironman – one of my older posts that I’m personally quite proud of.
- The joy of trail running – some inspiration to get out on the trails, and some suggestions for trails around London
- Tips for first-time marathoners – The marathon season is coming up pretty soon, and if 2017 will be your first one, have a look at this post
- Westcomb Apoc Review – One of several brilliant reviews written by Isaac, a regular guest contributor
- A Presidential Traverse – The longest and most demanding hike I’ve ever done, and definitely the one with the best views. Some cracking photos and a reasonably long post about this classic walk in the White Mountains
Enjoy, and keep reading. Here’s to another 100 posts.
