Well, I completed the 10k Brighton Brooks Race! Really wanted to do it in under an hour and managed it in 59 mins and 6 seconds so pretty pleased with that.
Unfortunately though I have had to take a couple of weeks out after spraining my ankle but hope to get my trainers on again next week.
It was my eldest son’s 4th birthday on Saturday. Cannot believe how quickly that time has gone and still remember very clearly our time spent on the Trevor Mann Baby Unit. I held a coffee morning up there last Monday on behalf of The Early Birth Association and took Forrest along armed with a big chocolate cake for the staff. The parents that we met all said that it was lovely to see how well Forrest was now doing and it gave them all hope for their own poorly babies.

Those of you that know me know I am not a runner. In fact, I worked it out and it has been over 20 years since I ran for more than a couple of minutes; to the shop, from the car in the rain etc.
I watch the London Marathon every year and it never ceases to amaze me how many people run for such great causes and I always get emotional. My husband Duncan ran the London Marathon in 2010 for the children’s charity Sparks and I have always wanted to do it so as I am neither pregnant, nor getting younger thought that 2013 would be my year!Read More
