Paul Hession`s twitter
I`d like to see TBF and Mick`s blogs on the list and would be a good STICKY
I'd feel a tad out of place in that company!
IMHO the main problem with top athlete's blogs is that the majority of them get updated very rarely and intermittently, and when they do update it's often not that interesting. Perfectly understandable of course, but it does not exactly make for riveting reading.

Keith Kelly's blog is excellent as well - Mostly for his excellent taste in music!
Marathon Exploits blog night before the Great Ireland Run
"I've restricted myself to 2 beers tonight - that's how serious I'm taking this one"
Makes me feel less guilty now
Not the record holder actually, but the fastest time for a Canadian in 25 years.
I agree about the blog though, it's excellent.
Since we are on the topic...Does any one here keep a regular blog ?
