I spent June travelling and eating and running. I think as far as this year goes so far, it was definitely one of the better months. Here’s hoping July is as fun!
Usually I sign up for races well in advance and then train and panic for them (in equal measure) for months. This one was a little different. I signed up to run the inaugural London 10 Mile 8 days before the start. I don’t think I have ever been so impulsive when it comes to my running before. Usually there are many reasons and excuses as to why I can’t sign up for one at such short notice. This time there were none.

Every Monday a group of amazing pacers lead a group of eager runners all around London. The pacers change and the runners change, and occasionally the time table changes and we run on a different day, but it’s always called Home Run. It’s something I always look forward to.
Earlier in April thousands of people ran the London Marathon. On TV a documentary was aired on how running can help with mental health issues. Watching the Mind Over Marathon, and watching the coverage of the London Marathon and seeing so many people run 26.2 miles got me thinking about the first marathon I ever ran. In 2013 I took to the streets of Berlin and started to run. I wrote about it then, but so much time has passed I wanted to write about it again because how I got there was very, very strange…
