Run Hackney 2014

Half marathons are few and far between in good old London Town and that is for a number of reasons, but in part because logistically it is very complex and expensive to close off roads in the city that pretty much doesn’t sleep. But during the London 2012 Olympic games a lot of boroughs learnt … Continue reading

Why don’t you just get lost?

A Pretty, Shitty, City

I have been dreading my run all day. This morning I slept in until…get this…12.15pm, and woke up to find I could barely walk, my calves were so tight (probably from all those stairs yesterday), and seeing as my partner had sorted out the kids for half of the day I felt like I was … Continue reading

Still not a proper runner

So today I was launching an Olympic Gardening project to mark 100 days to go until the start of London 2012 and I just so happened to mention I was doing the London Marathon to a group of local politicians from the authority I work for, 2 of them were very impressed and wished me … Continue reading

It could be YOU!!!!!

Yesterday I, along with 5000+ other lucky individuals got the chance to be the first to cross the finish line in the London 2012 Olympic Stadium, when we took part in the National Lottery’s Olympic Park Race.
