Hacked By Imam with love
Sunday: I will attempt my sixth marathon… barefoot!
After six years of absence, I will attempt my sixth marathon. I’m going to do it barefoot. It has been just under five years since Project Fuji. Time is relative. We get older. It goes faster and faster. In July 2011 I ran a half marathon up the side of Japan’s highest and most prestigious mountain, in […]
Trail Running by night
Driving to the inaugural Beerwah at night trail run on a stormy Queensland afternoon, news in that the nearby Sunshine Coast had just been smashed by golf ball size hail, the thought did cross my mind to just keep driving… back home. Indeed, I verbally cursed myself for signing up to this thing. There was […]
Finding what works for you
With a permanent ankle injury in one leg and then a seriously angry and painful Achilles aggravation in the other, to say it’s been hard keeping my running up, and more so my love of running up is an understatement of the greatest magnitude. I thought 2012 was a tough year of re-evaluation and soul […]
Back in the saddle again!
It’s July 22nd 2011 and I’m standing at the top of Mount Fuji, the highest point in Japan, and experiencing one of those few truly momentous occasions that I’ll always look back on and say, “damn, that was a truly amazing day.” I’d just reached my peak, and I had no idea that I was […]

Everytime I thought I’d made a decision, about whether to have the surgery or not, something came along that made me question my resolve moments later. I ran for the third time this year, on Tuesday, in my Vibrams again. Just the short 3kms around my […]
It’s run or bust this week…
With the inspiring finishes to the Brisbane Twilight Half Marathon still flashing before my eyes, I knew deep down that I had to give running a go once more this week. It was just a matter of when… With a doctor appointment scheduled for Thursday, I had a deadline. I’d promised myself I’d at least test […]
Running Man Pavey Unplugged
This week started with a bang, attending the Twilight Running Festival for 2012. I literally couldn’t stay away. I had to be there. For the past two years, the Twilight Half Marathon had served as my first race of the year. A favourite event because of its unique starting time late in the afternoon, and the […]
Runningman Pavey Launched!
At a time when things could not be worse with my running, at a time when I am at my most desperate, I have chosen to launch this page. “Optimistic!” I hear you say. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m am not an optimistic man. Foolhardy? Crazy? Hell bent on getting back out there on another adventure […]
