Three Peaks

Well, it is Wednesday and not long to the 3 Peaks Race on Saturday – http://threepeaksrace.org.uk/ – which I am looking forward to. The plan of action is KISS. Claire and I picked up at 7.30am by Simon Jump, then onto Des Thorpe, then to Horton in Ribblesdale for the start of the race. Run [...]

Some serious fell running by the Directors of Found Us – Stand Bradshaw Pendle Round.

Well Saturday saw us attack Pendle Hill with other madcap fell runners and what a run it was! Over 9 miles and approximately 2k of climb at a fast pace.

Why am doing cross country today in this weather?!?!?

Why have I committed to a 7 mile cross country race at Knowsley Safari Park? It is raining and cold, and 7 miles at full belt will be the death of me – still have a cough from a cold… http://www.northernathletics.org.uk/events/northern-athletics-cross-country-championships/

Looking forward to a month of fell running, well a whole year

Looking forward to a month, what’s left of it of fell running as I play catch up after my cold earlier in the month. Soon to head out an get some miles under my belt in a fresh Saddleworth morning. Good training session on Tuesday night from Stu, as we ran around the local area [...]

Today is…

Well it was frosty this morning, and the first frost of the year in Saddleworth, so a rather brisk walk with the four legged burglar alarm come Found Us Mascot. Currently in the Manchester (Quantcast) office typing away before the next meeting. Nice and toasty in the office, and lovely and fresh outside.

So up in Scotland. Hamilton, then Glasgow…

Well relaxing after a three mile run with young Calum on the disused railway behind his house. All very good, and well done to Calum for running that distance at my pace when he is 11 years old. Yesterday saw Claire and I drive to Loch Lomond for a run up Ben Lomond which was [...]

A trip to the Edinburgh Festival – 28th August

It is Saturday 29th August and I am sat in the lounge listening to Josie speaking to Claire about the holiday she has just been on with her sister Rose to Scarborough. We have been back nearly a week after our cycling trip to the Hebrides. The day before saw Claire and I out in Edinburgh for [...]

Back from the Hebrides! On with Found Us.

Well August saw a cycle tour from south to north of the Hebrides, with time spent calling into to stay with Claire’s cousins in both Ullapool and The Black Isle. All in all a great adventure to say the least. The weather was for the most part alright, but not great, with some bad rain [...]

Fell running and recruitment…

I thought that I would write a note as to fell running and recruitment, which probably seems at odds. What is fell running you ask, and I suppose most know as to recruitment. With fell running it is about running in the hills or the fells of the Lake District and losing yourself as well [...]

pro-manchester debating

It was with pleasure that Peter Cobley (yours truly) of Found Us participated in a pro-media Manchester debate at Workplace on Oxford Road. The debating topic, “Pitching or tendering is an effective way to win business” was and is a tricky one to defend and fight for. Well that is exactly what Joe Gosling and myself did [...]
