"We may train or peak for a certain race, but running is a lifetime sport"

Alberto Salazar.

For the past two weeks I've been back at home. And although no posts have been written... I have trained the hardest that I have ever trained! Being back on the go has made me realise how much I love it!
Mum's the word. I've never understood this phrase until now.. Well I've interpreted it in my own way and it was only brought to my attention 2 weeks ago on Friday.. We went for a run on a nice summery morning, I have to admit I was apprehensive, having been out of practice and running with a woman with nothing but sheer determination and with a half marathon on her belt, I seriously believed there was no way I could keep up the stamina. But, although she is fast and made me realise that I may need to pick my pace up a bit, it has made me realise how much I have missed it. And running with other people isn't that hard..

I loved every second of it and it was my longest yet. 7K. I am now on target to complete a 10 in september, before that however, I have signed up to Race for Life in June so a cheeky ask if you could sponsor me.. its a brilliant charity, 2 people who are very close to me had cancer last year and both managed to beat it so i really do believe in it
there is the address to sponsor me please take the time out i would be really grateful and I will promise to keep you updated and help you on tips and ideas if its needed!

I also weighed myself this morning, its not much but I LOST A POUND! I haven't lost weight with meaning to for ages so am so pleased and I know this is only the beginning but I beg you on coming with me on this journey.. It will be fantastic! Thank you xxx
