I was so close to a pb!
My official chip time was 1.01.33, whereas my fastest time was 1.01.28! Ah well, next time!
It was still such a brilliant run anyway.
Winners alert– after work today I went to the post office and posted off the prizes, so keep an eye out please! Fingers crossed they all arrive in one piece- please let me know when they do.
Look! I am super excited-for our allotment we get to buy seeds super cheaply from a catalogue and they all arrived! They even had seeds for spagetti squash! Plus some really pretty beetroots 🙂 I just hope some of them grow….
I also enjoyed an old favourite the other day- porridge in a jar! I finally finished one of the massive Whole Earth pb, so I got to enjoy super peanutty porridge. Mmm.
The other day the lovely Jessica tagged me in a blog award. Because I can eat more squash and pumpkin than she can! Ha ha love the reasons Jessica 🙂 (and also because she loves my epic race recaps!).
I now have to tell you seven random things about me.
Hmm. I think I ramble on so much you probably know all this already!
1- When I was little we lived in Denmark for a few months- my Dad did a teacher exchange. I went to Kindergarten there, and did speak some Danish although all I can manage now is counting up to ten. Not so useful.
2-I was very very scared to learn to drive, and only learned in my final year of uni as I knew I would have to drive to get a teaching job.
3- I am still in contact with my oldest friend- we used to go to Nursery together and despite moving away, going to seperate middle and secondary schools etc, we still see each other (albeit only once a year!). But I am not in contact with any of my friends from secondary school.
4-I cannot bear to even think about eating parsnips (sorry Lucy)- when I was little my Mum would disguise them with the potatoes to try and trick me into eating them. I could always tell but the thought of that makes my throat close up a little.
5-I have always loved music- I used to be in a choir (I am even on a CD for schools which my parents produced), and my Dad took me to my first gig when I was 15 (ish)- it was The Bluetones- anyone remember them? They had an album with a peacock on the cover. When I was 16 I went to T in the Park with 2 friends (they were 15 so I was in charge)- thinking back I can’t believe how young we were!
6- I am very scared of swimming in the sea. I was never a strong swimmer, and while on holiday in Turkey (I think I was 17) I was swimming in a cove when a big boat came in-it created massive waves and I was knocked against some sharp rocks- I still have a lovely scar at the top of my leg. But also the fish freak me out.
7-I need to get my hair cut but my hairdresser is on holiday until the middle of December.
Are they random enough? 🙂
So now I have to nominate some more fab bloggers. I think a lot of people have this now, but I will try to do new ones.
Lucy at porridge and parsnips (for lovely baking ideas- I want to make everything she makes!)
Marijke at Beauty in the balance (for inspiring running)
Ffion at Chocolate and Raspberries (for lots of tasty eats)
Nic at Nic’s Notebook (for getting me hooked on the pink whisk blog!)
Phil at Skinny Latte strikes back (for totally rocking the Cosmo awards)
Mary at Bites and Bliss (for rocking her marathon training plus some amazing Christmas baking)
And I have no idea who else has been nominated, so first commenter I pick you!
(Picture a big hand coming down from the sky to point to you).
Nominees, in order to accept this award you must:
-Thank and link back to the person who awarded you – Thanks Jess 🙂
-Write seven random things about yourself .
-Award seven other awesome and inspiring bloggers (OK I copped out and nominated 6).
Right, I am off for some mint tea.
Random question- if you could be any animal, what would you be and why? When I was younger I would have chosen dolphin, but see number 6! So I think I would choose something small like a rabbit.
