I took part in the London Royal Parks half marathon in 2015, after being successful in the ballot entry. It was my first ever Half Marathon and I stated afterwards that the experience was ‘incredible’. I promised to return, but sadly didn’t make it through the 2016 and 2017 ballots.

New Year, new goals!

This stuff is amazing and stays on for ages, despite daily showers, and… Continue reading You got me strapped up!
A present to myself
In a previous blog post (‘Medal hangers and bib displays’) I mentioned that I’d fallen in love with a gorgeous, but super pricey, medal hanger: https://www.medalhangers.com/view/350/Give-A-Girl-The-Right-Pair-Of-Shoes-and-She-Can-Conquer-The-World.
