About a moorhen

Moorhen scampers was formerly Scampering moorhen on Blogger. It is a running blog that occasionally gets distracted with other things, such as cycling, plants and cats. I run slowly (10 miles per min, depending on stuff), prefer distance to making lots of effort over a short period of time. My running would be better if I trained regularly, if I did the right training, and if I ate real food.
I used to run mainly in Asics shoes, but am gradually moving over to Inov8 with a slightly lower heel to toe drop; in 2014 I started wearing Brooks PureConnect road shoes, which are fantastic. I also have some PureGrit trail shoes, which are lovely unless it has rained in the previous month. I have moved from Garmins to using a Polar RCX5 and then back to a Garmin Vivoactive. I have downsized my bike collection from 3 to 1, due to self-induced poverty: a Claud Butler Sajitta mountain bike, called Claud; who weighs a ton, has no suspension, but is much loved.

Since 2013 I have been using my blog as a way to talk about depression and how I deal with it, or fail to. It helps me understand myself better, and remember what I have learnt. With luck it may make one person feel less odd or lonely..

If you want real insanity there is another blog called Somewhere on the M40, which is a long-running soap opera about red kites. I would suggest starting at the beginning!

I don’t currently have a full-time job, but I am looking. I tweet as @moorhenscamper, or on work/plant-based things as @mm10666.
