Runners Live Here

If you were a visiting Alien, I would like to think that it is not completely obvious that runners sleep here! However, Sherlock Holmes would only need to step in through the front door to know right away that some of the occupants partake in this physical activity. I would also like to think that it would be something he would notice through sight rather than smell, although this would be up for debate. This is the stash of trainers two of us own


There are off road, road, spikes, track, casual, old, new, smelly, dirty, clean, yes we like a selection.

Proceeding down the hallway the Hi Vis might also give it away

and if you peaked in the kitchen cupboard this might also give it away


Yes this is the home of runners.

If Mr Holmes looked closely in the living room, he would notice a package from


Yes my pack has arrived. No I have not opened it. You see if I do it will make it all the more real. I will try and be brave and peak inside later this week, but first I must get my last long run out of the way. Tomorrow I will do the Exe to Axe, it will be tough, it will be hilly, but for me its a training run, I shall let others race it. I am just hoping not to get lost ‘remember keep the sea on the right and follow the acorn signs’.

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!

  1. Have you heard of the very popular ‘Axe to Ex’ ? It sounds like it should be a reverse of your run, but is in fact a bloody call to arms for jilted lovers.

    Yours sounds like better training for a marathon, though.

    Good luck with the rest of the training. Not long now!

  2. Love your post Shaz ❤ running gear just seems to seep through into every nook and cranny of the house. And wow, your pack has arrived! You can do it. I'm so excited for you!!!!
