This Girl Can 'ENCOURAGE' Others to Run London Marathon too!

Where to start … What a day, What a weekend, What an experience! Steve and I collected our numbers from the Expo Friday afternoon, enjoying the atmosphere and of course buying some of the London marathon kit. Following on with a slap up meal at a lovely Italian restaurant not far from the Excel.

Saturday was a strange one, we didn't have much to do apart from wait for the inevitable next day....

It is nearly time.......4 days to go!

It is nearly time.......4 days to go!

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...

Time to Taper!

Time to Taper!

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 had the pleasure of being kept company by the Ampthill and Flitwick Flyers Running Club Chairman, Paul Owen who also kept me true to my plan so I could finish the last 4 miles strong and in a good place. I was so looking forward to finishing the last 20 mile run but now...

This Girl Can Run 20 Miles......Just!

This Girl Can Run 20 Miles......Just!

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...

This Girl Can Run a Marathon Again or So She Thinks!

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...
