This is just a quick blog to update you on the exciting week I’ve had.
You know how it works: you enter competitions & apply for things online & then don’t really expect to hear anything from it. So imagine my excitement and surprise when I opened my emails up Wednesday lunch time to find I had been selected to be part of the Reebok London Marathon Team!!!!!!!
As part of this I get to try out some Reebok apparel, a running coach and a place in London Marathon 2017!
I felt a little bad as Darren aka @Runnersknees had told me about this & I was successful & he wasn’t; he also told his brother to enter the ballot & his brother got in & he didn’t. That guilt subsided on Thursday lunchtime when Darren got a call saying he’d got a charity place (read all about that HERE).
I absolutely love London Marathon! 3 years ago it was my first marathon which was the best day.
I’ve now completed 10 marathons plus 4 ultra marathons. I take the weekend off work for the London Marathon, even if I’m not running, to go to the expo and either volunteer or cheer along the runners. It’s such a fun weekend and I can barely contain my excitement that I get to do it again as part of the Reebok team.
It all happened very fast and by Thursday lunch time I was officially all signed up! There was a London Marathon Meet The Expert day on Saturday and, by chance, I had the day off work anyway so I went along for the day. It was a great day and I took loads of notes that will be in my next blog very soon.
I have a couple of races between now & London. I’m doing Bowieathon on Sunday, a 5.25 lap race (you can do as many laps as you like); I’m also doing Barcelona Marathon on March 12th.
2017 is going to be a fabulous year x
