About Half-Fast

Half-Fast is a blog dedicated to finding the funnier side of running. Here you will find a collection of stories, poems, ideas, news and advice about running. OK, so there have only been two poems but that’s because I’m not a poet and I try to keep that stuff to a minimum and the advice? Well, the advice sucks and should be blatantly disregarded as I am in no way qualified to give advice. If you came here looking to be inspired you’re in the wrong place, my friend.

If you come across any news stories, videos or anything else that you think would make a good post here at Half-Fast then be sure to send it my way.

If you have found yourself offended by something you’ve read here at Half-Fast then I recommend you head straight down to Wal-Mart and buy yourself a sense of humor, and a more relaxed fitting pair of underwear. Nothing that you read here should be taken seriously. Ever.

Half-Fast is written by a sculpturesque runner who at one time used to be known as Vanilla in the online community and who is now talking about himself in the 3rd person. My real name is Ian but you can call me O Captain my Captain if you’re feeling daring. As for why I used to use the name Vanilla? Much like that Ice Ice Baby cassingle I bought, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I am happily married to my High School Sweetheart and we have 2 young boys, ages 7 & 9 that are free to a good home. You can read more about my parenting escapades over at Bottle Fed Parents.
