Have you ever had one of those runs where absolutely everything goes wrong? Well today was one of those days!

For those thinking of getting a dog to run with here's a few things to bear in mind first!

I love running with Loki. It’s fun. He offers a distraction so I don’t...

I often get called inspirational.  To be honest, I find it really hard to accept a compliment, especially one like this.

Yes, I run a lot of marathons but I am surrounded by normal people doing extraordinary things on a weekly basis which make my running achievements lo...

It has take a little while for me to write this blog as to be honest, for once I have no idea what to say!

I honestly cannot believe that I have done it.  It all still seems rather surreal and almost dream like.  Did that really happen?  I have the medals and trophy.  I...

In the words of my colleague as I arrived at the office this morning…’s squeaky bum time!  No “Hello” or the usual Bank Holiday type banter – he just got right to the point!

So, this is it.  My final miles have now been run.  No further amount of training will help...

Well, it has been an interesting one that’s for sure.

It is only 2 weeks now until my 10 in 10 challenge and things are starting to feel rather real. To be honest, I have absolutely no idea where the time has gone.

This is possibly not a blog for the men folk - apologies in advance for too much information!

I'm doing this blog quickly so I can put this race behind me asap and move on!  It is rather a long one - sorry!

I should really have listened to my youngest daughter, Eva....

So last weekend was the Yorkshire Cakeathon. SVN’s first race in God’s own country.

I haven’t run a marathon since the end of December and have struggled with that awful chesty cough and calf/Achilles issues since. My plan was therefore to have a slow run (I was ai...

I’m not sure what has happened over these last few days but I have woken up today with an overwhelming feeling of panic!

Panic – that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew

Panic – that I am not going to be fit in time for May

Panic – that I won’t hit my fundraising target

So, the Brathay training weekend has been and gone and I have now had time to digest lots of the information and advice provided!

I really enjoyed the training run and whilst I didn’t manage the full 26.2 miles, I had a good crack at 14 and felt I did a good job.  I fel...
