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/
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.
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 [...]
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.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Well it is that time to let people know that new roles have been uploaded to Found Us – www.foundus.co.uk – and if interested please do not hesitate to let Peter Cobley know!
A fresh Bank Holiday Monday sees me add new roles to the Found Us website. Whilst the Monday is not the best in terms of weather, it is good to be adding a number of cracking roles to the website, and the finale is The Edges Club Handicap race… In terms of the roles, do [...]
