Team Honk 2014 Relay – the Cornish bit!

teamhonkbadgeThis Sunday, I will be part of the Team Honk 2014 Blogger Relay, ensuring the baton makes the journey through Cornwall alongside fellow bloggers, friends and family for Sport Relief. Pippa Best from Story of Mum will be starting the relay off in style in Lands End at around 9am. The morning will involve a wonky walk with mums, dads & kids all donning mismatched shoes along the coast from Newlyn Green to Penzance. They then jump on a train to get the baton over to Fiona Cambouropoulos of Coombe Mill who will meet them in Truro. From there Fiona will be transporting the baton to Camelford with the help of a cycling Ted, after which I step in.

If all goes according to plan, the baton will take to two wheels from Camelford to Bude via a group of cyclists who will pass the baton over to the Caked in Mud runners. Putting our trail shoes on and our muddy feet forward, we will be running over the SW coast path to Hartland Quay, a journey of approx 15 miles with some lung busting elevations to take on! Head torches will be worn as the light will be going towards the end of the run. Once at Hartland, I may take a breather for a slice of cake and a cup of tea, well it wouldn’t be a Caked in Mud run if I didn’t! After refreshing the parts other hot beverages can’t reach, I will take to four wheels in order to meet up with our final Honker in Bideford who will then take the baton through border crossings to Somerset for the start of Day 2. A journey of approx. 41 miles will be achieved by cycling, running and motoring through the northern section of the county.

If you happen to see us on our travels through Cornwall this Sunday, do Honk!

Why I’m blogging again.

Two weeks ago I was asked by a fellow running tweep, @iPlodded, to contribute a little something to be included in his 7 days 7 runners blog post. The brief was to document my favorite run. I don’t have a specific place that is my all time favorite (around here there really have been numerous wonderful run locations) but I do tend to have a favorite day that I run on.

Hello to Wednesday. Feel free to pop over to Paul’s blog and read the posts – 7 days 7 runners , it will enable you to run throughout the UK and beyond without even leaving your home. I had great fun writing the post, connecting with 6 other running tweeps & being inspired by some amazing challenges people have been through. Thank you Paul for getting us all together & for motivating me to write about my running again.
