Loch Ness Marathon

There’s only two weeks left until I run the Baxter’s Loch Ness Marathon.   Off out this morning to run 13 miles, the last of my longer training runs, then I’ll mostly be relaxing and psyching myself up for the big day.

As I’ve said before, my main reason for running is to raise money for Cancer Research UK, as per my mum‘s request.  So far, I’ve raised a whopping £2,300. If you too would like to sponsor me, please visit my Just Giving page:

  1. Wendy, good luck during your prep runs and on race day…I know your Mum would be proud of you! I walked a half-marathon once and I know how much prep-time that took…I can’t imagine RUNNING twice that far! 🙂

  2. Wendy (2 weeks – 2 things)
    Read Christopher McDougall’s book, Born to Run.
    Buy, and run for two hours, to Springsteen’s Hammersmith Odeon, London 1975. If he can sing for four…
    Training – this is why we run. You have succeeded already.

  3. Hello there!

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you, but I am a TV researcher working for Jamie’s Oliver’s production company – Fresh One Productions, and we are currently making an exciting new 2011 Christmas show for Channel 4!

    For this series we are searching the country for Christmas dinner disaster stories. We want to hear from people who have hilarious and wonderful stories of Christmassy cookery calamities.

    We are trying to encourage as much interest as possible and I see that you are a bit of a foodie! So we would REALLY APPRECIATE IT if you would help us to get the word out there by maybe spreading the word amongst your food contempories via this blog, forwarding this email to anyone you think might be interested, or maybe you yourself have a funny story you would like to share!

    Anyone who is interested can email their funny festive flops to christmas2011@freshone.tv.
