I would run a mile!

And I am. I shall be setting off shortly to do the Sport Relief Mile down on Embankment. I do feel silly going on the Tube to then run a mile and get the Tube back, so I might run one of the journeys to make it worthwhile. You can watch the live show on BBC 1 from 10.30-12, I will be wearing a red vest and the number A4225425 (I think I’m in the first ‘wave’). Update to follow.


I did it, and here are some photos.

Me and Jamie Oliver!!

So, it was not as busy as I had anticipated and I had a nice warm up run from Liverpool Street (only about a mile) and waited around a bit to start. It was great to see a couple of my heros, Colin and Kelly, and to bump into a very knackered looking Jamie Oliver. When we started I got caught behind lots of kids, so had to try and dodge between them, nearly knocking a bloke over – sorry! I know it’s definitely just a fun run, but I can’t help myself and tried to run quite fast…but I’m not terribly fast, so came in after seven minutes 😦

Distance: 1.02 miles

Time: 7 minutes 36 seconds

Average Pace: 7.25

Best Pace: 5.53

Calories: 103

I had thought of running home, but forgot to put any sunblock on and it’s scorchio out there, so didn’t want to risk getting sunburn.
