Hellrunner - Trail Running 101

This Saturday I did my first ever competitive off-road running race, a little event called HellRunner down at Longmoor Army Camp. For the un-initiated, trail running is a form of hardcore cross-country. Not only do you get the footpaths and small ditches, you also get steep climbs, water obstacles and other general things that more sane people will simply walk round.

The alluring whiff of gloss paint

As you may or may not know, I had the last week off work. I promised myself that I'd spend a few days bumming around and generally recharging my batteries, and then get to work on finishing off the games room (or second bedroom as probably everyone else would refer to it). After a few days of frenzied (well, moderate) activity the decorating part of it is done, much to my relief.

Life is good

When I started in business last september I was worried about a huge ammount.

Looking back now I'm amazed at how well its gone, this month I'm on target to have a very good month and its only the 1st.

Yes as usually I've landed on my feet, but there's no reason for me to knock that.

Life is good.

Rip off Britain

I've been looking at some of the new ultra portables coming along with interest. I have for a while been interested in getting a nice portable laptop for doing stuff on the move that doesn't require me to take out a second mortgage or sell some of my organs on the black market.

Half Life 2

I've been playing Half Life 2 recently, since EMW bought the Orange Box and passed his HL2 and HL2:E1 licences to me... cheers mate.

The game is well done, pretty and plays well. The physics is nice. For reference, although a recent patch changed the default difficulty to easy, I'm playing on normal. Sorry, no funky screenshots like Pete's, thought about this while walking in.

Scotland

I have return from the bonny north with pics a plenty and legs that have yet to forgive me. I will be in work most of the weekend but hope to have picassa etc... sorted out in the next couple of days, whence photos shall appear.
