77 days to go - time to get serious!!

Ok, so, since completing my first 10km a few weeks ago I seem to have fallen off the running wagon well and truly!! I thought I would give myself a few days off to recover and what with one thing and another never really got going again… I managed an early morning run on Wednesday, just 5km to break myself in and I managed to do it without walking at all and did 12.33 minutes per mile, so I was fairly pleased with this…. 443 more words

I know it can be hard to get your five a day- particularly when you don’t want to carry around lots of different fruit and vegetables all day and you have a phobia of bruised bananas. 91 more words

Anybody willing to do their (big) bit?


I am writing to you on behalf of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. The Charity is busy recruiting runners for this year’s Great North Run which takes place on Sunday 13th September and with the deadline for signing up fast approaching we still have a few spaces available. 259 more words

12 weeks until the Great North Run!

There is only 12 weeks until the Great North Run!  I guess I should get my backside into gear and get some miles in!

My mom is now also training and getting ready for the run, which means that if I don’t get going, I might be hours behind that speedy woman.


My first Park Run experience

There was an idea from one of the #TeamSage runners to have a Park Run takeover.  Basically as many of the 249 of us would go to a park run across the country, all on the same day, the 20th June 2015. 1,567 more words

My run for the NSPCC in the Great North Run 2015

Dresses, beer and legs.

There is a story that goes like this! A boy met girl, became friends, she bought him a pen, he bought her a drink and another and another, they shared a laugh or two, jumped off the deep end (seperatly) bought each other another drink, talked, won and lost at the casino, became even better friends, ate pizza, walked, bought another drink, created a list, laughed and cried together, realised they were more than friends, went on holiday, fell in love with each other, moved in together, bought another drink, boy got on one knee, she said yes, boom, time for a drink, now boy has friend, companion and fiance all in one, she has happiness, stopped smoking, and bought a dress. 326 more words
