Run Silverstone 2019

I signed up for this one at the very last minute – I was tempted by the 10km at the time, but went for the 5km instead. Next time I’m in for the 10km! Number pickup, bag drop and the loos were all quick, really happy with the organisation and the way it was all…

Morun 2019

A cold and drizzly start to this race. Number pickup included a snazzy headband and buff which I was very pleased about! I chatted to a couple of nice goats for a while and it was soon time to get going. It was a different route to last year, and I enjoyed it more in…

Olympic Park 5k 2019

I was a bit sad I hadn’t entered any races yet this month. So got searching and came across this lovely race in London, a few days before. So I got signed up and off I went! On arrival, the race number pickup was quick and efficient, no queues! After a quick warmup the 5k…

Race for Life 2019

This is the first race I ever did in 2018 to raise money for CRUK. I trained hard for it, and was completely shattered at the end. This year I could tell my fitness has improved and I am going to have to up my game next time to 10km to raise money! We arrived…

Rocket 5k 2019

I was slightly (a lot) nervous going in to this one as the official cut off time is 45 minutes and it was only a couple of months ago I got under this time, and only by a few seconds. I didn’t enter last year as my 5km time was still over this so this…

MoRun 2018

I arrived at MoRun by myself and was really worried about doing this on my own. So this then meant I was stupidly early and freezing cold, with no car to go back to as I had got a lift. So I got busy making friends to pass the time. There was lots of interesting…

The Color Run 2018

The Color Run is one of those I kept seeing on Facebook, Instagram etc and thought it looked really fun. I was too unfit to take part and too nervous to try. In my year of losing weight, getting fit and doing things I have not done before I decided to give it a go….

Race For Life 2018

I have always wanted to run Race for Life, but have never felt brave enough to enter, until this year. Always thinking I was too slow, too big, not fast enough… I had already lost a few pounds and I was feeling good about my #slowrunner status! Knowing there would be runners, walkers and joggers…
