Virgin London Marathon 22 April 2013

This is what all the years training is about and finally it came round, not ready for this….. Knew I was in pretty good shape but developed a heavy cold and my foot after being MRI scanned a few weeks before agreed to still run but take pain killers.  Along with having also having a […]

National Relays – 13th April – Sutton Coldfield

Great team today at the relays displayed on fine form and got to catch up with Lou a few weeks before our London trip.  the Belles Finished outside of the top 3 and a few seconds slower than last year. Lovely to see all the girlies!! the laps were just over 5k for each of […]

Eastleigh 10k – 25th March

Another great 10k race and went with Pal Eddie, I was struggling a bit from a heavy cold but desperately wanted to get to this race, if it isnt raining its windy and this was again worse than last year, managed to come in 7th in 36.02 which  was about 4 secs slower than last […]

Intercounties – 9th March

Running for Bucks we did okay as a team but again cross country not my best and the performance in the cold and being spiked caused me a lot of pain on a very undulating course in Birmingham.  Used this mainly for training and great to bump into Emma from Cornwall (went to Toronto with […]

National Cross Country – Sunderland February 18th

Brrrhhhh shiver Sunderland seriously cold and Snow in February, Id be lying if I said I was hopeful the event would be cancelled.  I should have picked the year they run this at Parliament Hill which is better than a 9hr journey and a day out from 6.30am and returning back at 11pm. Had a […]

Wokingham Half Marathon – February 10th

A week after Bramley wasnt sure what results could be delivered, it was as usual very rare to be great running conditions although last year was the better of many years.  Notorious for being windy and torrential rain and thats what greated us at the start of this race.  At 10 miles I was still […]

Bramley 20 – 3rd February 2013

Love this race also as its challenging and a long race to get an idea of marathon pace without going full out.  They always recommend you save something in the tank and this race is quite a way out from London but great training. Really pleased to have paced this comfortably for 20 miles and […]

Woodcote 10k – January 2013

A week later from Cliveden 6 and normally the opposites dates around I ran my annual loved winter 10k Woodcote.  On a back to back schedule having also run cross country for Belgrave on the day before I wasn’t sure what the legs would deliver. Another great organized race although the start was delayed by […]
