My life and the stuff that happens while I live it.

Inov 8 Roclite 305 First Run

Running is a very cheap sport to get into. You only need some trainers and off you go. Which is why after re-booting my running career two months ago I’ve acquired (via gifts and my own purchases) running gear costing a substantial amount more than “very cheap”! I treated myself to a new pair of… Read more →

Run for The 96 5K

This morning I ran in the “Run for The 96 5K” race in Stanley Park in Liverpool. The race is in its third year and is run to remember the 96 who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster in 1989. It is also run to raise funds for Everton in the Community and the… Read more →

Thunder Run 2018?

I started to run again about 8 weeks ago and already I’ve got the urge to run the fantastic-sounding race, Thunder Run! It’s a 24-hour event, and for me it would involve being part of an 8-person team, taking it in turns to run laps of a 10K course. I actually entered a team back in… Read more →

Is Running My Resolution?

I’ve been running since 2003, not continuously, I’ve had the odd break here and there, including a near 3-year hiatus when I moved to Newton in 2014. However, earlier this year I decided I needed to get back into running. Luckily for me I live a few minutes from the meeting point of a local… Read more →

Synology DiskStation 112+ Western Digital 1TB Red HDD Western Digital 1TB Elements USB… Read more →

The Journey To NAS

I’m not a NAS expert, so obviously I’m going to use my blog to tell you all about NASs. More specifically, my journey from a NAS newbie to a…well, I haven’t got a NAS yet, but that’s what the journey part is about. First, a little background as to why the journey. I love music,… Read more →

Grand Theft Auto

GTA III is the best game ever made. And the GTA series allowed me to create one of my favourite jokes: A video game of IP-based theft – Brand Theft Auto. And now we’re on to GTA V. It’s neither the best game ever made nor do I have a good joke about it. Or… Read more →
