The Bath Half – Race Recap

So last year, my run club decided to all sign up to the same half marathon. Not wanting to miss out, I booked up and then realised that was going to be three half marathon in 4 weeks. I can do that, no worries I thought! Then at last week Vitality Big Half, I really didn’t enjoy it, my foot hurt, the weather was horrible (Read about it here) and it really doubted my ability to run another one so soon. I have been put on medication recently and it has been making me very tired, and I really didn’t…Continue reading The Bath Half – Race Recap

The Vitality Big Half – Race recap

Let me start this recap with my comedy moments from the weekend! Firstly, when I got out of the tube station at Tower Bridge, the heavens opened. I put my hood up and was sending a video to my friends asking them why they didn’t want to come to London. You may have already guessed, but my head was down I wasn’t looking where I was going, and I walked into a lamppost!! There were so many people around and I felt so stupid! So that started the day and this to finish! Last year, Jordan – Project Marathon Girl had…Continue reading The Vitality Big Half – Race recap

Brighton Half Marathon 2019 – Race Recap

I LOVE Brighton! Date: Sunday 24th February 2019 Time: 9:30am Weather: Bright sunshine and warm. Course: The course is the exact same as last year, so rather than rewriting it, check out last years post here. My race:  I was so nervous about this race! I would even say that I wasn’t really looking forward to it – dreading it! After last weeks race, read here, I just didn’t want to hate it. I didn’t want to ruin my love for this race. It was a slightly later start than normal, so I didn’t have to get up ridiculous early, so a…Continue reading Brighton Half Marathon 2019 – Race Recap

MK Winter Warmer 10K – Race Recap

I booked this race about 2 weeks ago. I only heard about it as my cousins were running it, and I thought it would be nice to join in with them. I left it till last-minute to book as it was the start of half term, and we hadn’t made up our minds if we were going away or not. I booked it and then didn’t really think about it. At training last week, someone had said to me, you have enough time to race it and still recover for Brighton Half the following weekend. So then I started think…Continue reading MK Winter Warmer 10K – Race Recap

The Great South Run – Race Recap

My RunMND family has been taking part in this race for many years, and I remember watching it on the TV  looking for them, and it looked lovely, so a few months ago, I looked at booking it. I remember thinking it was expensive for a 10 mile race and kept putting it off. Then someone shared a competition to win a place, so I stuck my name in, and I was lucky enough to win a place, so thank you SimplyHealth and GreatRun. By the time I found out I was running it, a lot of the hotels in…Continue reading The Great South Run – Race Recap

Wellingborough 5 Miles – Race Recap

I know, it’s like buses!! I don’t race/blog for a while and then two come along in one week! Blame my club, as they have two club champ races in one week. So, if I’m going to delay my holidays for a race, I might as well do both of them! My niece and nephew held their annual #twinfest to celebrate their 5th birthday, so I was actually camping all weekend. I did wonder whether I would make the race, as I knew the celebration may involved some alcohol. Well, I was a very good girl and only had one…Continue reading Wellingborough 5 Miles – Race Recap

Doug Anderson 5k – Race Recap

I’m not one for paying for a 5K race – why would you when you have a free weekly 5K in Parkrun, but this race is part of our club championship and although I know I will never win, it does mean that I get an entry into the London Marathon club ballot. With ballot places becoming harder to obtain, I think it is worth giving myself more chances to get to run the great marathon again one day! 5K’s are hard, made harder when your training hasn’t been that consistent. Annoyingly, I seem to be saying this a lot…Continue reading Doug Anderson 5k – Race Recap

Brighton Half Marathon 2018 – Race Recap

I have run the Brighton Half marathon three times before, and I pretty much signed up for this year’s race immediately that it opened. This year, I was a little bit more organised and booked accommodation early, as in the past I have paid a fortune for hotels last minute! The race had a little bit of a make over, with new sponsors and colours, but it was just as awesome as always! View this post on Instagram So it’s the final day of my #photochallenge . I have really enjoyed seeing everyone’s photos, so thank you to everyone that…Continue reading Brighton Half Marathon 2018 – Race Recap

MK Winter Half Marathon – Race Recap

So, this is the race that was supposed to happen back in December 2017, but the weather decided it had other ideas. Back in December, I wasn’t entered for this race! Well, actually I wasn’t planning to run this race until about Thursday last week! Last weekend, we had the really sad, devastating news that a member of our RunMND family Dave Solomon had lost his battle with MND. He was one of the nicest men you could ever meet, and his love of life was evident for all to see! Dave’s wife had planned to run this race, and…Continue reading MK Winter Half Marathon – Race Recap
