Yes, finally! The last day of Juneathon and I can stop blogging every day! Juneathon has been a great exercise, but it has been the blogging part that has been the challenge as I usually do some form of exercise every day anyhow, even if it is just my plank. But usually I wait until

This weekend in June is one of my favourite weekends of the year. It is the weekend before my Birthday, and I remain, even as I approach 40, childlike in my excitement of my imminent birthday each year. I love the build up to things almost as much as I love the thing, be it

Juneathon 5k

I managed to get a run in after work, and before Pete went out to the running club. I needed that run and really enjoyed it! I worked without a break ( mainly sitting a desk on a computer with some meetings thrown in for good measure) for around 9 hours straight today, and my

Another really busy day today, I felt exhausted when I got home after a lot of long meetings and a lot of driving. I really just needed to clear my head so I went for a brisk walk for 2 miles then I took the dog and my daughter to the park covering another mile

The importance of nail colour when running

I was quite pleased with my running look today because my nails are co-ordinated with my top: Terribly important for a run, I’m sure you’ll agree. I really needed my run today after a day of spreadsheets! Today my run was interrupted by a work call. I have been trying to get hold of someone

A blog that contains something other than running

I went for a run super early before work this morning. I love running that early, it feels somehow even more virtuous. I thought it would be lovely and cool before 7am, but it seemed hotter than later in the day when it rained. I was drenched when I got back, even my shins were
