I’m not sure how I came across the London Winter Walk. I was probably Googling London fitness events and it must have popped up! I remember being on the Action Challenge website, reading about the event and thinking that a 20K ramble through London during the daytime sounded pretty appealing. I’ve taken part in a… Continue reading London Winter Walk 2018
Happy New Year! In my last post I mentioned that two new things for 2018 will be as follows: I’ve got two new pairs of trainers in the post to start using as from January 2018: a new pair of Nike Free Run gym shoes to use for Insanity, Zumba etc; and a new… Continue reading Joining a Running Club and NEW SHOES!
Oh, 2017. This year started well, running-wise. I took a lovely lady’s place in the London Winter Run 10K and met some fellow runners; then I took someone’s place in the Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon – an event which I had been avoiding for years due to the severe profile – and still managed to… Continue reading 2017 in Review

I have my race outfit planned and a physio session booked in for the day before, to get one final stretch and then strapped up with K-tape. My fridge is full of pasta parcels… Continue reading Race preparation and BOUNTS
On 4th January I accidently stumbled across a post on Facebook from Vitality UK, offering a chance to win a place for you and a friend in February’s Brighton half marathon. In a rush and not expecting to be considered in the slightest, I jotted down the first honest thing which came into my head… Continue reading Awesome competition win and NEW SHOES!
I mentioned in a previous post that, personally, I like New Year’s Resolutions. When is it ever a bad idea to have realistic and achievable goals and targets? I didn’t have a set resolution as such for 2016, but I did want to feel healthier, fitter and run more half marathons. I invested in a… Continue reading ‘New Year, New Me!’
