The last time I did an Endurance Life coastal race I took so long my brother came looking for me. I've just signed up for another. On Exmoor. I vaguely know the area so at least there won't be any fears I've got lost. I've also signed up for the Regent's Park summer series: a season of 10k races on the first Sunday of every month, starting in April. After last year's marathon effort, the emphasis this year is on short and sweet with enough energy left for a nice glass of red. Drink more red wine. I feel this is one new year's resolution I may be able to keep.
