Our London Marathon Weekend Part 2

So it was our second day in London for the Virgin London Marathon and to say it started just a bit early would be an understatement. The girls were awake and raring to go at 5am, and as big as our family room in the premier hotel was, it was very spacious I might add, there was still nowhere to hide haha! Like it or not, it was time to wake up, but breakfast didn’t start for another two hours and I was starving! Anyways! Eventually breakfast came around and we went down around 7.30am and had a first class… [Read More]

Our London Marathon Weekend Part 1

The weekend just gone, if you hadn’t noticed, was the weekend of the London Marathon and this year my wife, Emily took part in running the 26.2 mile course. Oh my goodness!

We arrived on the Friday and planned to leave Sunday night. This was also going to be the girls first proper visit to London so we were going to try and fit in… [Read More]

My Wife Is Training Hard For The London Marathon

Looking back to just under a year ago my wife announced to me that she was going to try get a place to run the London Marathon.

That’s 26 miles, and previously she had only run half-marathons, and only two… [Read More]

My Wife And My Daughter Run The Cardiff Half Marathon

A few days ago my wife and daughter ran the Cardiff half marathon together and it made me feel very proud that they pushed themselves to run 13 miles. It really is an awesome achievement and there is no doubt that it should not be underrated exactly how tough it is because it is without question a fantastic thing to do. For me it’s actually difficult to fully understand how hard and tough it is because I have never been a runner, and if I’m honest I would struggle to run 1km before collapsing in a heap on the ground… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo : My Wife And The Half Marathon

This beautiful lady is my wife who I am immensely proud of. She has trained hard for a long time to take part in her first half marathon. I don’t doubt for one minute that she will complete it in a very good time. The commitment and dedication my wife has shown not only to compete, but to run a good time is awe inspiring. My heart is bursting with pride and love for you. Our five year twins and I will be at the finishing line to cheer you pass the line whatever the weather. Good luck, not that… [Read More]
