Race Review: Movember Battersea 5K 2015

MOVEMBER There have been only two races that I have run every year, without fail, since taking up the sport in 2012. The first was my first, the BUPA London 10K and I am already signed up for the 2016 event, and look forward to my 5th medal. Mainly because they have been getting better…

Race Review: The 42nd BMW Berlin Marathon

The 42nd BMW Berlin Marathon or… How not to “hit the wall” in Berlin… When I took up running in the spring of 2012 my goal was to run the Amsterdam Half marathon that October, something I thought of as almost unachievable. Unable to run before due to breaks and fractures, I trained on the…

Race Review: The Spitfire 10K RAF Museum Colindale, London

The Spitfire 10K RAF Museum Colindale, London: The 75th Commemoration of the The Battle of Britain Anyone who reads my blog, and there are some who do, know I am not one for pulling punches. It is not to be mean or overly critical (unless you are the British 10K, in which case you deserve…

The Two Oceans Half Marathon (finally!)…   So it was finally here, the Two Oceans marathon weekend in Cape Town. I cannot even remember when I signed up for this one, probably on the day the event opened, so this has been a long time coming. As an international blogger for the Two Oceans I…

First time to the Rainbow Nation

First time to the Rainbow Nation for the Two Oceans Marathon weekend….   It has been a while since I both raced and blogged, a month in fact since the Garmin Race Your Pace half marathon at the Eton Dorney Olympic Rowing Lake, where I blew away by PBs for the 10K and Half, and…

The Road to Cape Town

The Road to Cape Town (and beyond!)… or The Cancer Research UK Winter Run London As the more avid readers of this blog will know (Both of them. Hi, mum! Hi random stranger!)  that, after 32 medals came my way last year, running in London, Dublin, Luxembourg and all over the UK, I decided to…

New Year Update

NEW YEAR UPDATE A few things are going on in 2015 which are quite exciting at the moment. To summarise: I am running home from work several times a week. This is clearly a good thing as it quadruples my training distances. Note: By training distances last year I didn’t train at all. So this…
