Finally hit the 15km mark

My training for next month's Royal Parks half-marathon continues. I'm missing tons of training time due to work travel and, this week, illness.

Thanks Apple!

After what seemed like an infinity of patience-destroying annoyance, Apple has finally updated its Podcasts app. I'm a big consumer of podcasts and nearly always have one playing while I'm out running.
