Watch me now!

I talked about the filming for the London Marathon #ExtraMile project a few weeks ago, but I’m pleased to report that both the Extra Mile site and the first video are up now!

I’m one of four runners being followed on our journey through to 13 April, but the site is open to any runners who want to share their story, training, and generally just get a little pick-me-up when it’s cold and grey and you really don’t want to do that run that you know you’re meant to do… Oh, and there are competitions to be won, too, like the first one for £100 to your fundraising target.

Anyway, have a watch of the first teaser video, which features me in a fetching blue wig!

It’s under 2 minutes long, so you can easily have a look while you’re waiting for the kettle to boil, or even stretching after a run…

If you need further inspiration, read through my friend Chris’s account of the Flatline 10 race I took part in on Saturday. I ran 10 repeats of Swains Lane in 1:28!

  1. It’s funny to hear your voice after many years of reading your blog and seeing only pictures of you :)

    Do you have a grand piano on your boat?!
