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…

Checkendon 5k Canicross

“We’re off to checkers” was the clamour on the Checkendon Facebook group. I had no idea why everyone was getting so excited? Checkendon was advertised as a canicross / bikejor and scooter event and had sold out very early on. I was lucky enough to get in on a cancellation and am so pleased I…

Maverick Inov-8 Trail Run

I have just ran the shortest 8k ever! No idea how it happened but I’m merrily jogging along when a marshal says ‘almost at the end now’! Seriously? I was convinced I was only half way around! Today was the MaverickInov-8 Trail Run at Stonor Park, Henley-on-Thames and what a fantastic event. It was advertised…

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…
