Race Reports

South of Thames 7.5 Mile XC – Saturday 15th December 2018, Kent

This was a day I was “on a mission” I hadn’t raced in Kent for a few years, mainly because the last time 2 years ago they hosted it took Alex and I  3.5hrs in the car and we nearly missed the race.  This year I came solo from Oxfordshire ( moved last year) with multiple […]

South of England Masters & Inter Counties – Oxford – 9th December 2018

Feeling tired and heavy legged from the marathon and on a mileage week, I didn’t really cut any slack in the lead up to the 6k XC race due to frustration of Valencia’s race and also felt comfortable going back into training.  Quads and ITB despite a massage still felt so tight and what wasn’t […]

Valencia Marathon – Sunday 2nd December 2018

As always looking forward to the girls weekend away ( Whirlwind) but love Valencia and always ran well there, weather is on the hot side but it’s a flat/fast and enjoyable course.  You just need to get over the initial surge and find your rhythm.  The Airbnb  with my friends was lovely, great hosts and […]

Eynsham 10k – Sunday 25th November 2018, Oxfordshire

With my local Tuesday sparring partner Di who is much quicker on the shorter stuff, rightly or wrongly I had already accepted in my head that the aim was top 3 in placing and also improving on the past 10k’s raced.  My favourite wind was present (sarcastically said) and meant with all the tight turns, […]

Gosport Half Marathon – Sunday 18th November 2018

What was a cold and windy day travelling to the coast,  morale was low as was vision on the roads driving to the event.  Travelling solo I succumbed to chilling out with my car radio. I hadn’t run a half marathon all year, having started working I felt unwell and since been concentrating on the […]

Reigate Cross Country Relays- Saturday 3rd November 2018

Team outing out for Belgrave with Alex and I both in attendance for Belgrave.  Another relay thriller! This time at Reigate with the Belles consolidating on our  bronze at Wormwood scrubs 2 weeks, we flipped our order from the Scrubs and held Saron back until the last leg to catch a small gap I lost. […]

Gloucester 10k – Sunday 28th October 2018

With some back to back racing and the “ Clock also going back”  and a frost on the ground anything could happen today. I wasn’t particularly high spirits  getting up in the morning and knowing that I had a long drive and to support Norman ( my coach)  and his event.  I managed to get […]

GB 100k World Championships Croatia  -8th September 2018

“Well what can I say, it was a pleasure to be reigned the British 100k champion at the end of March this year in a new PB of 7.53.57 and to top it off also recovered from a disastrous racing year in 2017 due to Glandular Fever and being picked up by Norman Wilson who […]
