A little explanation....

It's been a bit quiet on here lately so I think it's time to explain the silence. It pains me to say this but all the motivation, positive talk and 'taking one day at a time' in the world couldn't get me carry on with my marathon training this year so I have deferred my entry to 2015.  

This is not the end though, it is merely a blip, albeit a necessary blip, to get me to where I need to be. as I have learnt a valuable lesson that training for such a big race takes time and dedication and I just haven't had much of either so far this year!  It would have been foolish to carry on with half-arsed training as I would have been in the back of an ambulance by mile 14 and that is not good.

Very soon, I will be moving to a beautiful part of the UK where I plan to be out and about in the countryside/rivers/sea walking, running, cycling, kayak-ing and generally moving towards the happy fit person I was becoming last year rather than the tubby, embarrassing, drunken ijit I have unfortunately slipped back into!

Cycling on Dartmoor.  (If this isn't motivation - I don't know what is!)

First aim is to complete another half marathon in the early summer and maybe join a local running club as I probably need some motivation (and advice) from others to keep going.  

So, there's not much more to say now than watch this space because someday...there WILL be a photo of me crossing the finish line after 26.2 miles!
