Mutterings of a Fool

Man, Dad, Runner, Chief dog walker

The Running dad is on the move!

I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but the time has finally come for the running dad to move to pastures new. I love writing about being a dad that runs, but have found myself hesitating from writing some of the posts I wanted. I thought they would be too technical or specific to running rather than about a dad that runs.

So I’ve taken all the posts on running that I’ve written on here and transported them over to their own shiny new blog. Which is called *drum roll* Lycra and Lunchboxes. A name that I have to say I am particular proud of 🙂

Although I’d forgotten the pain you go through setting up a new blog, choosing a theme and getting it just how you want it. I’ve tried to go for quite a different look to here though and something which fits better with me as a runner.

You can find the blog by simply clicking on the screenshot of it below. I’d be honoured if some of you would consider becoming readers over there as well as here. It won’t be just gear talk and training plans, in fact it’ll probably not be much of that but rather stories about the races I’m doing and the adventures I’m having.

  1. Interesting. Blog looks good and I imagine it’ll give you more freedom in what you feel you can write.

  2. Nice. I keep thinking I ought to do this for cycling, especially as I’ve managed to get out a bit more recently.

  3. Good stuff. Although it is, of course, yet another blog to fall behind on reading… 🙂

  4. Nice! Fitting title for northern climes!

    That looks great. I’m always wondering if I should create more than one blog, instead of jumbling all my subjects up! Love the theme, and the title too!

    • in general I don’t mind my blog being a ‘lifestyle’ blog don’t think you need to be too specific, but for running it just feels better having a bit more freedom.
