For the past year or so I’ve been working on putting together a virtual run to support Baby Loss and Sudden Infant Death Awareness Week. This is usually run between the 9th and 15th October. As I’m fundraising for Kicks Count this year I thought what better way than to put together a virtual 5k/10k […]Read more "Baby Loss and Sudden Infant Death Awareness Week – Memorial 5k/10k Run/Walk."
I’ve been a massive fan of Lancaster Three Bridges since I happened upon it in 2012. I’ve only missed it once since then (we broke down on the motorway) but we’ve made it a real family outing over the years, even including one outing with my DH family. It’s a pretty simple 10k as things […]Read more "Lancaster Three Bridges Review – Sunday 30th April 2017"
Having come off the back of the marathon leg of The Lakesman my plan was always to do a few 10k’s as I started building up to Chester Marathon in October.

Wednesday 1st June was the beginning of what would be a packed week of competing. It was a last minute decision to run the Carlisle Tri Club 10k due to the fact that I had to work a night-shift following it. But in the end I just decided to man up and get amongst it.

A couple of weeks ago, Tuesday 10th May to be exact, I took part in the Moorclose 10k. This was my third year running it and the previous years had seen me PB at 10k both times. With the strength work I’d been doing since January and the positive mind-set I’d come out of Manchester […]Read more "Moorclose 10k Review – Tuesday 10th May 2016"
A week removed from Manchester Marathon and I had the great idea of heading down to Lancaster to take part in the Three Bridges 10k. The recovery plan said to run a seven mile recovery run on the Sunday which essentially meant to run around nine minute miles. So I thought I could combine that […]Read more "Review – Lancaster Three Bridges 10k 17th April 2016"
As I sit here with man flu I’m starting to think that the running Gods don’t want me to get my shit together this year. Well, I say man flu…I don’t know what the kids have given me but it’s absolutely knocked me sideways. One minute I’m boiling hot and the next minute I’m freezing […]Read more "Resolution 10k 2016 and Marathon Training update"
