Carbs and a vase…

It appears I can’t be without my running trainers. To work, to dinner… Even antique shopping! They are starting to feel like a second skin. At the least the black ones are fairly incognito…

Saturday was spent at Hungerford Arcade shopping for crystal vases. Just to make it harder I decided it had to be a ‘cluster’ per table, we are talking 45 or so in total.. Luckily the antiques market was a treasure trove, although I had to stop Dan from buying a suit of armour! It’s that or the honeymoon. Or on second thoughts perhaps I can convince him to run in it for charity? Then we wouldn’t know if its the chain mail rattling or his knees….I digress..thanks to my eagle eyed parents we snapped up rather a lot of vases which I will be auctioning off to friends and family after the big day. Of course all proceeds to St Joseph’s Hospice! 

And what a glorious Sunday. Sun shining and a cool breeze, made 21 miles along the Thames very pleasant.  Only mistake was running over lunchtime. With Sunday morning procrastination at its best, we didn’t set off until 1pm which meant the whole day felt dedicated to running. By the time we hit Kingston, the smell from Steins was  so intoxicating, I was convinced Dan would lean over the wall to steal a sausage. At least we would have had the edge on a quick get away! 

I was asked for a photo of me running….

Please help us keep going…

Running a marathon is a walk in the park, right?! We have done a couple of half marathons, and this has always been the ultimate challenge.. but three weeks before our wedding? Everyone has told us we are mad. Raising money for the fantastic charity, St Joseph's Hospice, on the other hand makes total sense! Providing unequivocal vital care and support for patients and their families with life threatening and serious illness, St Joseph's Hospice is far reaching but costs £15 million a year to run, so very much relies on generous donations (like these) to keep doing it's vital work. We appreciate any support you can for St Joseph's Hospice and we in turn, hope to keep you amused with training anecdotes, cringe worthy photos and brief blogging... wish us luck!
