My name is Maria and I blog on runningcupcake.
And one of my favourite things is tea! But that could not fit in my blog name…
I love to run (after discovering it back in 2008, scroll down if you want to read more) and one of my proudest moments was in 2011 when I completed the Stockholm marathon. It still seems amazing to me that I actually ran all that way.
In 2015 I took on another marathon, this time in Brighton, and was so pleased to achieve my sub 5 hour target.
I do like a nice medal, so I often sign up to races.
I also love to bake (hence the cupcake part of the blog title. I actually prefer cookies and brownies to cupcakes, but I was not so keen on how the names sounded) so you will see some of my baking on here.
I have a tendency to ramble a lot, so I will also blog about body pump, the marathon talk podcast, and other topics that take my fancy. You have been warned! And welcome 🙂
