Weeks 25 and 26 – Great South Run #500MilestoBrighton 

I’m writing the first part of this blog before running the Great South Run on Sunday 22nd October. The past two weeks I have really enjoyed running. Finally I’m starting to have conversations with people whilst making my merry way along what ever distance I’ve been tackling. This means it is getting easier, before I … More Weeks 25 and 26 – Great South Run #500MilestoBrighton

I did a 3.2 mile run around St Mary’s Island, Chatham. Whilst the temperature was a little … More Week 9 – Hot hot hot! #500MilestoBrighton #TheBrainyBunch

Week 6 & 7 – Joining a new group and then going on holiday!

These two weeks were always going to be a little different and I am sorry that I haven’t updated you on them. That is mainly because I haven’t actually done much running. The main reason for this being that I went to Milwaukee and Chicago on holiday. I managed to get out on one run … More Week 6 & 7 – Joining a new group and then going on holiday!
