Read: Not Another Vapid Running Interview

Pizza, narcissism and running with Lilli Price, a gal who clocks more time at the running track than most. She's like a human wind-up toy from the carnival, one that doesn't stop or run out of juice. She ain't chasing vanity metrics or trying to impress her coach, she's about being the best version of herself, fact. And, that version is fast, re

Opinion: Running Helmets

Summer arrived drunk last weekend in Sydney, a raging 45 degrees, approximately 113 for those US side, marking the start of summer and what looks to a damn hot one. Hopefully, sans months of wild bushfires. Lacing up and running this time of year starts to get a little harder. Motivation slips as the lust for air-con grow stronger. Dai

Opinion: Rapha Does it Better

The lines between retail space and cafe have been blurry for some time now. Today, it's an expectation that retail spaces have a coffee nook or a place to sit and watch. A space to hang out, borrow wifi or charge a device. For Rapha, their stores, also referred to clubhouses provide a hub for cycle enthusiasts to meet, shop, eat and drink, watch r

Epic Jay Woods - seriously, how great is Rapha! Major high five.

Opinion: Nike Air Tailwind ’79

Nike has pulled the dust cover off its classic Tailwind 78 silhouette, thankfully. A retro runner that looks as good today as it did back then. Dropping a box full of colourful updates, the makeover is sure to delight any sneakerhead, let's discuss. Say aloha to a racing goddess. Making her debut and first striking the pavement some 32

Geez they're good those people at Nike! Love them!

JPG: Through the Lens of Alessio Soggetti

Alessio Soggetti's expectations for photography appear anything but the norm or the status quo. Graphic, unexpected, bordering on combative at times, his images arrest your eyes and leave their mark on your mind. And, all I can say is thank god for people like Alessio. Italy has given the world many gifts, Pantani, Accordi, Agostini and plent

Listen: The Weird World of Runners Talking Running

INSIDE RUNNINGIt seems excessive, but they've got a lot to say about running. These lads produce a weekly podcast talking everything from training, running gear and running news. There's a HUGE back catalogue to get into, all running (pun intended) from an hour to two and a half. It's casual, conversational and full of some interesting views and o

Watch: Where Dreams Go to Die

A cult-like race that tempts people from around the world to test their limits of physical and mental endurance. A documentary that contemplates the value of pain and a documentary that is well worth your time.2020 has been a tough year for many, a hot mess, a shit show and a cluster fuck.

Run: The Hunter Valley Ultra

The ultimate challenge and reward. At 102kms, this is the longest course of the event and the only one that goes through the night. An elevation gain of 3200 metres and a maximum elevation of 588 metres. With terrain and the elements to face, the finish line is the ultimate reward, perfectly located at Draydons Winery, sounds pretty good already.

That looks like a fun trail Jay Woods !

Opinion: Chasing No One

Running has been described as the world's most accessible sport. It's free, fun and good for you, there's a lot to love about something so simple. Booming in the US in the 1970s, road running has come along way since millions, including the 39th U.S. President, Jimmy Carter who took to the sport. Running spread far and wide, fast becoming par

Watch: Live on the Lawn

What if it isn't a chasm of talent and dedication that separates us from the world's best athletes, but rather their access to the best equipment and facilities? If you've thought this before, you're probably not alone. But, there's plenty who would disagree, and, Gary Mulholland would be one of them. You see, Gaz hosts Live on the Lawn, world-cla

Gaz looks and sounds like a bit of a good dude. Epic!

In a strange sequence of events, my Sunday run turned to a Sunday walk. Sydney harbour was looking mighty fine under the sun's subtle glow.

Disillusioned with Cali’s sun-drenched scene, a bunch of London mates living in the ‘Palace’ introduced a new, grimier breed of skateboarding. 


Eleven years later, they're collaborating with cycling brand Rapha.

I'm keen to see how this turns out ... Palace Wayward Boys Choir turned Palace Wayward Bicycle Choir, perhaps?
