MOST RECENT

Bit gutted about this. I shall do the half marathon instead as it's back too the morning slot. Need too look for another marathon now for autumn time #birminghaminternationalmarathon #nomore #gutted

And just like that, it was gone. A double whammy of bad news today - the #coventryhalfmarathon is cancelled for this Sunday and this year’s #birminghaminternationalmarathon has been pulled.
Both the right decisions, and for different reasons.
The Coventry half could turn into a snow scene so it’s only right they consider the safety of everyone involved. I’m gutted for @morrallclaire who trained up for this to be the first half marathon, but now maybe @rmitchell55 and @katiekershaw can run it with us after having to consider not running on Sunday through injury.
Regarding the Birmingham Marathon it’s good to know the organisers listened to us runners - the route was genuinely poor and failed to really sell our city. I run international marathons so I can take in the sights, not run down deserted back streets past scrap yards and through areas smelling of urine, so to hear they want to change the route after the comments made is great news. Both events will be back and I will definitely be doing them again.
I’m just a bit gutted that so far I’ve now missed 2 out of 2 events - please @marathonrotterdam don’t cancel 😬😂

Two announcements today about two of my upcoming runs this year... The Coventry Half this Sunday has been cancelled due to the weather, and the Birmingham Marathon in October has been cancelled due to scheduled roadworks and redevelopment work!

I hear running is bad for your knees, anyway... #running #marathon #halfmarathon #exercise #fitness #coventryhalfmarathon #birminghammarathon #birminghaminternationalmarathon

What a beautiful morning. I've been easing myself back in gently after new year with a few short steady runs but next week it's time too step up. 9 weeks until 1st half marathon of the year so 8 weeks training.

Flashback Friday

Inspired by @jorunswithasmile_ (as I constantly am,she's amazing) posting the video of her smashing her sub four hour marathon yesterday here's mine.

I remember looking up at the clock above the finish line and seeing it say 4:02:00 as I approached it and almost cried 😂😂. I'd literally ran my heart out I'd almost collapsed with about a mile to go when I had a major hypo.

I looked at my watch and thought how's it possible that it's that far out...then I remembered that it was a staggered start and I set off about 10 minutes behind the first group.
Then I cried 😂😂 as seen on the last clip in the sequence. One of the best and most emotional experiences of my life. I still pinch myself now two months later.

Me...a marathon finisher...a sub four hour marathon finisher. Sub 3:50:00 I'm coming for you in 2018.
