Running With Music

A blog about training for the 2017 London Marathon and its soundtrack


Hello. My name is Charles.

I moved to London after University and have called it home for the last 5 years. I enjoy going to Sam Smith’s pubs. I cycle around on my single speed. My favourite park is Hampstead Heath. I shop almost exclusively at Local/Express branded supermarkets. I have fallen asleep on the night bus and woken up at the depot. I know the best carriage for a swift interchange between the Central Line and District Line at Bank. I was saddened at the closure of Fabric nightclub, even having only been there twice.

Sound familiar? That’s because I’m an average bloke.

True to form I decided to undertake the ultimate average-guy challenge; I signed up to the 2017 London Marathon.
