Brighton Half Marathon by Bosh Member Luke Ashton

Brighton Half Marathon 17/2/13 8:15am Being a Brightonian, I only have to cross the road, and walk down the steps to the sea front, that is the start. Today is my 2nd Brighton Half and it has 50 or so Bosh-Run members running or spectating. I think we should be part of the sponsor! We all can be spotted in our matching tech tops. Walking down the sea front towards the help desk, which is at the very end of the starting pen, near the baggage tent. I hear my name called out and see Mark and L...

Meon Valley Plod 21 miles by Bosh Member Keith Elshaw

Meon Valley Plod 21 miles 10/02/2013 10:30 start The weather forecast was not good, but we are hard core GRR’s we are not fair weather runners, so 15 of us turned up for the Meon Valley Plod on a cold, wet Sunday in February.

Never seen and certainly not a fashion statement but come on people you need to swathe those feet in something nice and luxurious and they will look after you what ever your distance. I a...

Does the book ‘Born to Run’ + Minimal Trainers = Running Greatness?

Have you read ‘Born to Run’.....You should read ‘Born to Run’........’Born to Run’ is a great book. If one more runner says that to me, I will scream! As a matter of fact, I have indeed read said book and yes it was good. However, I am not 100% convinced and still have reservations about this whole barefoot thing. If god designed us to run barefoot. Did he also foresee tarmac and concrete? Does the makeup of ground even matter? I am a neutral runner and a trainer harlot. By that I mean I j...
