I seldom blog about it these days, but sport is important for me as a way to stay healthy and – to a large extent – to stay sane as a freelancer. Haruki Murakami talks about these sorts of things in What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. While I do run and cycle to keep fit, inline skating is really my sport…

The Berlin Half Marathon is always the season opener – it took place yesterday. The map and graphs from my GPS watch are below. I’m tremendously happy with the result – 59th position in the fitness category in 41:14, knocking 5 minutes off my previous best, and for the first time averaging more than 30km/h in a race. The next British man was in 670th position, more than 30 minutes slower… Now how much training do I do for the rest of the summer?

Nothing in politics can possibly equal the kick of getting over that finishing line in a personal best time…
