Managed to run a personal best at the Eastbourne Half Marathon 2012 on Sunday.

Had to leave Worthing at 8am to get Hallum and Jevan ...

Poor Organisation Unfortunately, Elsa is unwell at the moment and Ellis was having a grumpy day, so I don’t think Victoria enjoyed herself very much. With hindsight it might have ...

Graduation and Bristol Half Marathon

What a good weekend. Saturday morning we set out for Portsmouth for my graduation ceremony. My mum, Victoria’s mum, my brother Simon, Ellis, Elsa, Victoria and me. The ceremony was held at The Guildhall. Wearing robes immediately gives one a sense of superiority! Had my photo taken after waiting in a looooong queue. Victoria tells me they all cheered as ...
