Being crap at Maths finally pays off… I accidently ran a marathon!

So yeah firstly I’d like to thank Loreto College for my education. All those 33% in my Maths exams has finally paid off. Finally feel worthy of a honour after running 26 miles instead of 21 today. My inability to work out the right Maths equation finally worked to my benefit!! Thank you Loreto!

Ah sure there I am in action!!
Ah sure there I am in action!!

I’m pretty sure most people are getting bored with my updates and me harping on about the MARATHON but thought I’d keep harping and share my top 5 marathon benefits…


Pubs ~ As much as I love them… I don’t miss them or the Sunday night fear… I now welcome a Sunday night with my Barry’s tea and biscuits. People gave chocolate up for lent… I took it up!

People ~ I’ve been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of friends, family and random people who I’ve never met. People who do things for charity are so inspiring and human.

Body~ Your body will become more toned and you’ll feel empowered as to how far you can push your body through your own aspirations.

Life ~ Running a marathon is more than just a race. It changes your life. You’ll find things in life when you’re not looking for when you’re dedicated, focused and in the zone!

Kissing for a living

A whole new world ~ It’s inspiring to see and discover Landan and life out there before 10am on a Saturday and Sunday. I’m loving my new park and non hangover life!

Chase the dream
… not the competition!
