One week to go

This morning at a ridiculously early hour for a Sunday I jumped in the car drove half an hour to

sign two

to run 13 miles. I ran from Sampford Peverell to Tiverton along this


nice wide, flat paths (except for the detour which made me grumpy as it had hills.) I got to the end…..

the end

which was really the middle and turned around to head back. I can’t lie the last three miles were tough, tougher and toughest but was rewarded with a last mile that was faster than most of the others.

These fluffy beauties were hoping I had some food for them at the end, in fact my stomach was also wishing the same!


Not a bad route, one I will do again when they have sorted out the flooding at Halberton, the best thing was it had toilets at the beginning, middle and end, what more could a girl want?


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!

  3. Canal paths are the best, aren’t they? I did most of my training for my first marathon (many moons ago) along Nottingham’s canals and those of the surrounding areas. Lovely.
