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…

Jubilee 10k Swim

‘Sarah!!! what have you done!’ said Rob in his smooth South African accent as the guy at registration handed us our orange caps signifying that we were in the fastest swim group.   When I signed up for the Jubilee 10k I had no idea how long it would take – I hadn’t swam more…

10k Winter Run

It may only have been and 7.00am but the tubes and trains were already packed full of people carrying their token of unity – a blue plastic cancer research bag packed full of everything they could possible need for the run … and indeed a weekend away by the looks of it. Angus Steakhouse at…

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…

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…

The Night Before

Today we spent the day writing frantic Facebook posts and sending random whatsapp texts asking everyone what they were taking and what they had packed. As the day drew in the first ‘we’re here’ posts started to pop up alongside the growing feeling of hysteria  and butterflies!  Vagner had packed the support car including full…

Almost ready ….

The kit arrived … So of course we had to go and show off and what better place to do so than Piccadily Circus and Angus Steakhouse. We’ve also got ‘Rex’ logo’d up and he looks amazing with all our sponsors logos and ready to take on the challenge of being our support and film…

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…

Final preparations …

What better way to go through the Macmillan checklist than with friends, plenty of wine and good food? Less than two weeks to go … And we are all getting nervous. The designs have come through for our team kit! Massive thanks to all our sponsors and in particular Derek and his team at D&P…

The Big Push

Now I can say this to my besties, Tim and Vagner, with the full knowledge and confidence in knowing I’m right …. Liar liar pants on fire! I’m not getting thinner … And now that you have seen me in my underwear you’ll have to agree. And don’t be fooled girls … All that mud…
