Well, I promised myself this year that I would try and take on some races that were just plain fun, and last weekend I completed my first ever obstacle course at Rough Runner in Oxfordshire. I was feeling kind of nervous when I turned up in the morning, I didn’t really know what to expect, and though we’d only signed up for the 5k route I didn’t know how tough those obstacles were going to be. Because I knew that there would be lots of getting wet I was completely without watches, phones or cameras, which felt a bit weird, and means there are no pre race photos to entertain you with! Gasp!

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…
