Last year, my mum had a stroke in May and sadly died in August 2017. Having seen her suffer for three months, I decided I needed to change my lifestyle and do something that my mum would be proud of. I set myself a Challenge – to run the Cardiff Half Marathon.
With grateful thanks to my great friend Tony who has dragged me through training, the Cardiff Bay 10k, the Whitchurch 5k and the Cardiff 10K, today I met my challenge and completed the Cardiff Half Marathon.
A massive thank you to Tony but also, I’m sure my mum was looking down on me today helping my along.
Whilst this was my second 10k, it was the first that I have started and finished without stopping in between – really pleased with my run and time 1 hour, 14 minutes and 58 seconds. Not fast but my PB!!

Big thanks to Tony for helping me get there and for keeping me on track for my PB.
Wonderful dinner this evening.
My starter, salmon:
Daphne’s starter, asparagus:
Both had same main course, rib eye steak:
The food is outstanding!
It is so nice to be back at Restia Suites, Corfu.
A great day today, Cardiff City promoted to the Premiership next season and I managed to finish the Cardiff 5K. Thank you Tony for pulling me along.
Great to run with Nic and Emma too, well at least for the first 1k.
Bilbao next for the Blues v Gloucester in the European Challenge Cup Final – Can’t wait!
Big day has arrived, very excited.
But before tonight’s run, a rather important football match has to be played. Massive game for the Bluebirds against Reading. A win today and it’s Premiership football next season, c’mon the Bluebirds!!
Only one day before the big event in Whitchurch. Picking up our running T shirts today – exciting!
