Well, that was a surprise in the bag to win Bracknell Half in my quickest time ever of 1.20.37 and 3rd overall win and also vet category.  Especially after fearing earlier in the week that my glandular fever was overcoming me again with a fever temperature.  However, having booked the race in a few months […]

Pednor 5 Miles, Chesham – 1st May 2017

I really wasn’t up for this race on the day having had a busy weekend and Saturday running also a long training run.  Regardless I needed to flyer the race with the local school event and felt this would be good training for me.  I went with my friend Trevor due to Alex feeling unwell.  […]

Maidenhead Easter 10 Miles, Maidenhead – Friday 14th April 2017

My first race in double digits this was going to be an interesting run.  I did feel some slight pressure especially with it being a local race and half hoped to dip under 60 minutes.  A full packed race at the startline and a lot of local recognised faces.  I had no other expectations apart […]

ERRA Womens 6 -Stage Relays, Sutton Park – Saturday 8th April 2017

I really wasn’t sure I was going to make this race based on how I had been feeling the last few months.  Knowing  that I didn’t feel marathon fit but wanted to see some improvement in my illness I decided to commit to the race and take a long leg.  The question was; ‘Should we […]

Delighted to hear some positive news to be selected along with a fellow Belgravian Sophie and a few other girls to make a team of 5.  Having been poorly and still pulling through I feel elated but also very nervous due to my recent poor health and going into the race now feeling under-prepared.

Seville Marathon – 19th February 2017
