Jubilee River Swim 10k Windsor

There are two types of swimmers in this world – the Dory’s and the Nemo’s. The Dory’s wear wetsuits – sometimes back to front or inside out. They remain confused throughout the event and can be heard singing ‘just keep swimming, just keep swimming’ but they are for sure a cheery bunch and a delight…

Mud Kids Dorking Autumn 2018

We arrived a little early to the boys delight and despite my pleas to keep dry at least until the event started, they all leapt into the stream, taking the bike with them? A shrill whistle from the Robster signalled pre-start preparations were about to get underway so the boys (and Tia) came running. We…

Windsor Ultra 2018 – The Naughty Crew!

Ultra running most definitely isn’t my thing! To be honest I don’t really know what my thing is … but I remember as a teenager, my main event was pentathlon and I always dreaded the 800m. On one such event, I had to come 4th in the 800m to win overall but at the 600m…

The Big Push Nov 2017

Back to the Trenches Mud Run Junior As I stood on the sidelines taking photos I couldn’t help but giggle! The kids were all warming up with such gusto! ‘We’re only giggling because we don’t have to face the cold water’ said another mum who was standing next to me. Her daughter, Samantha, was running…

Trick or Treat

2017 Halloween Trick or Treat Run Southwark Park, Bermondsey Who on earth let all those spooky ghouls and spectres loose in Southwark Park today? There were witches, mummies, zombies, black cats, skeletons, devils … it would appear that hell had been unleashed … along with masses of fake blood! 😂 It was a little bit…

Muddy Dog Challenge 2017

Muddy Dog Challenge – Hever Castle 2017 Battersea Cats and Dogs Home ‘I need to wee and change’ I shrieked as I threw the dog lead to the Robster, running across the field whilst stripping down to my bra to put my ‘Muddy Dog Challenge’ t-shirt on. A voice boomed over the tannoy ‘wave 17…

Run in the Dark 2017

Have you ever tried drinking water whilst running? Not easy … but add the complication of trying to pour it so your lips don’t touch the bottle and you have a disaster!  Yep – that was me on tonight’s Run in the Dark 10k at Battersea Park. I had a great run but was a…

Trick of Treat 

Ghouls, ghosts, mummies, zombies … the Trick or Treat Halloween Run in Richmond Park had them all!  We were entered into the 2k run with kids which started at 10.50 at Robin Hood Gate. Everyone had made a fantastic effort … especially the grim reaper, although frightening passing runners sent him into fits of laughter…

My little trooper!

‘Twas the night before muddness, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse’. Our matching kits were laid out and we were sleeping soundly in preparation for our ‘Over the Top’ extreme mud run at Back 2 the Trenches. ‘Why do you want to do the mud run?’ I…

No Mans Land 2016

Angus Angels take on No Mans Land at Back 2 The Trenches September 2016

Wiggle Northern Angel

‘It’s mizzly out there today’ said mum as I dragged my bed head around the kitchen looking for coffee. Is mizzly even a word or did she just make it up. Anyway, it was miserable and drizzly and I really wasn’t sure if this was a good idea – especially since I had to drive…

Boulters to Bray Thames Swim 2016

Ok – I know we are team Fat but Fit on Wheels but we seem to have branched out …. On Saturday 2nd July we swam the Boulters Mile (which is actually 1600m or 0.9m). They claim it’s similar to the bakers dozen and this works for me! In a Dukes of Hazzard style drive…
