Well. what a weekend filled with sporting activities I’ve had! There was no partying after Eastern Sur5al for me, because I had to get up stupidly early to get down and pick up my number for the Trowse 10k which starts at 9am. Last year I called the Trowse 10k “My Slowest Yet“, but this year I was pretty convinced I was shaping up for an even slower one as I’m still trying to get some of my fitness back after all of last years health hassles, and most of my recent longer runs have been at 10:30-11 minute mile pace. Still, I didn’t really care, it was a sunny morning and for the first time in my life I was going to have actual spectators on the route as…

2015 sees my Roller Derby league, The Norfolk Brawds, celebrating their fifth birthday. I’ve been with the league for 18 months, but long before I’d even heard of Roller Derby a bunch of girls with skates were getting together in a church hall to teach themselves the basics of Roller Derby. To celebrate this milestone…

#Janathon Day 31 – VICTORY IS MINE!

IMG_6197

It’s 10pm at night, and the reason tonights post is so late is that I had a 5 hour snowy drive to Manchester, and then dinner, and now I am finally settling down for my final installment of Janathon. Because of the long drive, and the fact that I had to be at our training…
