I’m Nikki, a Blogger, mummy, runner and PR for Believe and Achieve events Portsmouth (Portsmouth Coastal half and full marathon, Santa Run, RNLI 10, Ghost Race, Pieces of Eight) and a self-confessed fitness addict!
In March 2014 I was bullied into taking Part in Tough Mudder London South, and so in training for this over 12 mile obstacle event, I began running! After 7 months of training I became a fully-fledged Mudder and over a year later and I am still going strong, although I have stepped slightly away from obstacles in favour of road races (who would have thought it)
I started this blog to document my experiences in training, and to remind myself of the struggles I have faced to get to the point I am at now. After 1 Tough Mudder, 1 Brutal, countless 5 and 10K’s and two half-marathons, I am currently training for my next challenge, the marathon!!!
My most exciting news was recently taking part in the Great South Run official photo-call and meeting the legend that is Paula Radcliffe! Make sure you check out my post “The day I met Paula Radcliffe)
If you are a runner you will hopefully relate and find this blog both light-hearted and amusing. If you are thinking of becoming a runner I hope I can inspire you with my journey and show you that you really can do anything if you set your mind to it
It’s been one hell of a journey so far, so make sure you scroll back to my very first post “Get fit or die trying” to see where I started and where I am now 🙂
