From a young age I started running with my dad and joined the local running club; I have always loved sport especially Athletics. Running has shaped my life and experiences dramatically over the years; giving me some incredible highs and some heart breaking lows. It has honestly been quite the love affair over the 20+ years. Running has become part of my routine and if I don't run it feels like some...

As a sit here pondering at the thought of running 26.2 miles I told myself on Sunday whilst I was completing my last long-ish run around Stewartby Lake and Marston Vale that now was the time to be confident, be sensible and relax. However, with just 4 days to go I am feeling anything but the above. We have planned to pick up our numbers from the Marathon Expo on Friday evening being slightly disappointed...

After months and months of training and covering 465 miles to date the final 20 mile long run was completed on Sunday at Oakley.

I was so looking forward to finishing the last 20 mile run but now...

Last weekend was the first 20 mile training run on the dreaded London Marathon schedule. Steve and I made the long journey to Bramley leaving the house on Sunday at 8 am to make sure we got there in plenty of time for the race to start at 10.30 am. We had both completed this race last year so knew what to expect...hills, 2 laps and the pain that overcomes you at approximately mile 17 knowing there...

I spent most of last year complaining about training for a marathon and how tired I was so when the opportunity arose this year to apply for a Golden Bond charity place for London Marathon I thought why not...I always liked a challenge. I was so pleased to be accepted especially as I am running for a local charity called 'Encourage.' When I told my work colleagues and friends the good news they were...
