Madam and I headed to Cardiff today to meet up with some Essex friends who were on their way to Pembrokeshire for a holiday.

We had a tour of the


it was really interesting with not surprisingly  a few dragons around the place


The little people gave a press conference.


The youngest one on the right gave the press a run for their money, they won’t mess with her again if they are wise!

We got to go in the corporate box where ridiculously they have a four course meal before the game, with butler service. Butler service at a Rugby game, the world officially has gone mad! This was all on offer for a ridiculous price. We also got to go in to the Presidents box where we could sit in the royal seats that are placed further apart than other seats to prevent the royals knocking elbows!

It’s a good experience and if you are ever in Cardiff give it a go.

I love this that was in the shop


and this which was in the changing rooms used during the Olympics


We had a lovely time playing catch up and now I realise I need to pull my finger out and enter the Cardiff half marathon as its only a 2 hour drive away.

Running? No. Catch up session will occur tomorrow!




About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
