Seville Marathon -17th February 2019

Wow, that time already it feels like the ” 3 Amigos” had only not long come back from Valencia in December.  I was still looking forward to Seville, training had been going really well but the lead upto the depature  sadness.. Having been on a whistle stop tour to Sweden via Copenhagen with customers on […]

Promoting British Ultra Running – Sunday Times, 18th January

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.
