Virtual London Marathon 2020 (Sharon)

So. We entered the Virtual London Marathon on 28th August, David thought it would be a good idea. For some mad reason, I agreed – five weeks prep would be fine wouldn’t it? We also managed to convince the Porters that they wanted to do it too. Heh.  As the next couple of days passed by, I was swinging wildly between it being ok and I’ll be fine to NOT! WHAT AM I THINKING?!  To try to control my nerves,

Virtual London Marathon 2020 (David)

So… we’d been doing a few training runs in readiness for a relay race in September and things were going well – and then I saw online that the London Marathon was going to be a “virtual race” this year (unless you’re Kenyan whereas you get to run laps round a park in London instead). This didn’t interest me at all – until I saw that everyone gets a technical tee shirt and a medal if you finish. And it

David Lloyd clubs Ultra Relay – 13 September 2020

In 2019 I took part in this four person relay race from Worthing to Brighton of (approx) 10 miles each. I only did it as there was the promise of a burger at the finish. The burger was lovely and I wrote about it (and the run that led up to it) in last years blog. This year the organisers worked really hard to ensure that the event could be run in a Covid-19 secure manner and with everything that’s

Chichester 10k – 2 February 2020 (Sharon)

Well. It’s been a long time since I blogged and an even longer time since I blogged about running a race. There had been much discussion (and many attempts by David and Kirstee) to get me to enter the Chichester 10k – I was declining and David told me he’d filled in the form for me! Next thing I knew my running number came through the post – and my tummy instantly felt squiggly! Anyone that knows me and racing

Chichester 10k – 2 February 2020 (David)

A couple of weeks ago Sharon and I decided to enter the Chichester 10k. Well, I thought it would be a good idea and whilst filling in my entry form filled one in for Sharon as well. I ran the race last two years ago (I don’t think I blogged about it) when I did a number exchange with a friend who was injured. I had a good run, my time was 42 minutes exactly and my training log said

David Lloyd clubs Ultra Relay – 24 June 2019

I don’t run hills. I very very rarely run off-road (I ran on the beach once this year and that’s about it). So why not be part of a team of four running 10 miles each mostly off-road between Worthing and Brighton up to and along the South Downs Way? No was my answer. A few weeks later I heard you got a decent burger and chips at the finish. Sign me up! There were 30 mile or 40 mile

The Felpham Five – 5 June 2019

Beach running… my favourite. The last time I wrote about beach running here was in 2016 when I took part in a race in Littlehampton. I wrote at the time… Straight after the finish I saw Ben (the race director of the new Felpham Five event) and immediately offered myself as a volunteer for his race – anything not to have to run!! In 2016 I volunteered for the race. I don’t think it took place in 2017 and then….

Mid Summer 5 – 13 July 2016

After the ‘fun’ of a beach race last month this was time to get back on the road.  I’d heard good things about the Mid Summer 5 race – mainly because you get beer and a burger at the finish – this sounded just like my kind of race.  It’s an evening race which seems to be better suited to the beer/burger idea! The weather was great although there was a little bit of a breeze.  The race starts by
