Editors note: running posts only for a while

Well, it was bound to happen: this blog is officially, temporarily, going to only be about running for a while. It's exactly 3 weeks until the marathon and the highlights of this past weekend was buying a new sports bra (it was 25% off!) and doing an 8 mile run at my marathon pace. Big doings, folks. I can only imagine that the next few weeks will be more of the same.

I hope you'll stick with me through the next 3 weeks, if only so that you can be rewarded by lovely Prague photos and tips. I promise that come November there will be nary a post about running. Until then, maybe you will be inspired to run as well? If so, GREAT! If not, I don't blame you. It's a masochistic sport.

Either way you roll - runner or not, reader or not - I hope you enjoy the autumnal season. Go gourd shopping with a vengeance and get some Indian corn to hang on your door, and enjoy the end of the golden sunshine while crunching on leaves.

PS Why do I always find pictures of runners on the beach? I NEVER run on the beach!


  1. I'm looking forward to your running posts! I have only just started training for a marathon (not previously being a runner at all), so I love reading about others' experiences and progress!

    Good luck with the final stretch! :)

  2. Thanks Karen! I wasn't really a runner before moving to London either so I'm still mildly shocked that I'm actually training for a marathon. I hope my posts help you a little - especially using Hal's training regime.

  3. Totally - I spend so much time now just reading other first time marathoners' training & race day stories!
