Here’s the next installment about my recent participation in the international sketchbook project organised by Arthouse.

The theme I chose was “Along The Line” which I’ve interpretted both literally in terms of the style of my drawings but also to use the pages to portray different things associated with the timeline of my life so far – a mini-autobiography, if you will.

Another running event that has become a more recent habit is the British 10k in London.  The course allows you to run around the key landmarks in central London with no worries of the London traffic.  I will say, however, that the race is now so popular that it’s congestion of a different kind – too many runners – that impacted on my enjoyment of the 2011 race.  That and the fact that they hadn’t applied for an official race license so my PB, albeit only a 1 second improvement, didn’t count!

The biggest frustration is down to people who fight their way to the front before the start that, within 100 yards are then walking – creating an obstacle for the tens of thousands of runners behind them.  It wouldn’t be an issue if it were just one or two people put it’s tens of people and they seem to operate in pairs and threes which make the obstacle even bigger.

On the non-running side, I absolutely love visiting London.  I will never get bored of going into London visiting one of the many museums, shops, galleries, attractions or just meandering around the streets.
