This weekend I will be donning my Ealing Eagles vest and trying my PB luck at the Ealing Half, a race that takes place just meters from my doorstep.
It’s not flat and I have definitely not been running enough recently but I’m just going to give it my all and see what happens. Besides, if it all goes horribly wrong it’s a quick jog back to bed!
One half should have been more than enough but I was then offered a place at the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon this week and it was just too good an opportunity to miss.
This will be my second time running Royal Parks, with the first time being my first ever running race. Which I guess makes this my one year racing anniversary? What better way to celebrate than an amble around London’s most scenic half!
And it will have to be an amble because I have something exciting lined up the week after…
OTHER EXCITING NEWS
A couple of months ago I was asked by the lovely James Fairbank at Rapha if I would be interested in being part of their Spring/Summer ‘14 collection (and 10 year anniversary) photo shoot. This would involve going out to a beautiful location, wearing some incredible gear, and riding with some amazing cyclists. I don’t think you can turn down an offer like that!
So on the 7th October I am off with Rapha to the Cote d’Azur. To ride some cols, wear some clothes and hopefully not fall off my bike.
Keep tuned for updates!
P.S. It also unfortunately means I can no longer take part in the Oxford Half Marathon on the 13th October so if anyone would like my place please get in touch!
