Happy New Year everyone, hope you had fun! Me and Suzume decided that this year whilst we will still be busy blogging away about all the beauty products we love, hate and simply cant live without – we also wanted to start telling you a little bit more about ourselves. So you can see the people behind the nail polishes, hair sprays and glitter eye shadows.
And so I thought I would tell you about one of the big challenges I have taken on this year – the Virgin London Marathon. Yes on April 17th I will be attempting to run all 26miles of the course. Why? I want to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and quite simply I am mad. For some reason I have been obsessed with completing the London Marathon and finally after five years of applying I was accepted with a ballot place. The only problem is I am novice runner, I hate being out in the cold and wet and at present can barely run to the bus stop let alone round the streets of London.
Still, on the plus side, like many of you I am feeling the pinch from Christmas – now in my clothes rather than the wallet, so hopefully this will kick start my Get Fit January resolution. The regime began yesterday with a little shopping – knew I would get some in somewhere – when I popped down to my local Asics store to get myself some trainers. So I am kitted out and ready and kind of raring to go!
Tonight I completed my first run. It wasn’t easy but there was definitely something invigorating about being in the fresh air. I came home feeling quite virtuous and proceeded to scoff a huge bowl of pasta. Well I do need to keep my energy levels up don’t I?
So that’s a little about me. Don’t worry it wont get in the way of any beauty blogging but I will keep you updated on my journey to the finish line.
