OK so "sio'n the run" has tagged me in the 7 Facts Blog Awards!

The Rules:
  • Link the person who awarded you.
  • Post 7 random facts about yourself.
  • Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers. (maybe another day)

Do you really want to know 7 things about me... and I take it you don't really want to know that I wear my watch/Garmin on my right hand and that my hair now has silver highlights...

  1. After getting married in 1998 I didn't cut my hair for 2 hairs!!! I had a stress fracture and wasn't running, so I didn't want to cut my hair till I was running properly again.
  2. My wife and I go out for Pizza every Wednesday (and have been doing this for 15 years, to the day on Saturday!!!)
  3. I have some MAD friends and we pushed a 'pub' around 2Oceans Marathon, yes all 56km of it stopping to drink beer and play golf! Our 1st stop was at 22km and we needed it as we had past 21km in 85min...
  4. I couldn't really swim at school, but taught myself and finished and IRONMAN, OK I've now done 2 of them and the 2nd one I trained for the swim at home in our 9.5m pool!
  5. I am the middle child of 5, I have 3 brothers and one sister.
  6. I've always run, I can remember saying to my Mom 100+ years ago: "Time me I'm running around the house."
  7. My polevaul PR is 2m10... that was in a decathlon and I don't know what my score was...
So there you have 7 random facts about me, maybe someday I'll let some of my other PR's slip.


  1. Time me I'm running around the house! LOL!!

    You know I have a neighbor who has chickens, hers are quiet she claims is the roosters that make all the noise!

    I'll max out I believe at 8-10 800's. I really don't think I can run a marathon that fast, but I can run my 800's like that. Yes I have a confidence issue. :)

  2. Those are great! I especially like the pizza one -- it's so great to have traditions like that.

    That's cool about the Ironmans too. I hope to one day complete one.

  3. Awesome about pushing the pub around the marathon!

    And I didn't know you completed 2 ironmans, that is an amazing accomplishment!

  4. Ahaha that first pic is great!! That's you?!

    You've done some pretty impressive things :D
