Drum roll please…. I completed my 2012km Gold Challenge last night. Managed it in 1 year. Finished my last run at 7.30pm last night so just about had time to get changed & settle in with a curry to watch the Opening Ceremony (how great was that?!).

This is me with my medals from the races I included in my challenge. This includes my 1st ever marathon - London :)

Did the Bupa 10k, Central London today. Far too hot for my liking (26C) but managed to make it round in 58:40. Another 10km in the bag for my 2012Km Gold Challenge for Cancer research UK.

A good race with slick organising etc. Mo Farah was back to defend his title at this race. I saw him fly past at about 7.5km and I was just at 2.5km!

I’m currently in Eagan, Minnesota for work for a couple of weeks but managed to squeeze in a weekend break to NYC with my parents.
As I’m still working on my 2012km Gold Challenge for Cancer Research I have been clocking up some mileage on this trip too. Tomorrow I get to run in Central Park, NYC. This is what the park looks like from the top of the Rockefeller Center.
How iconic is running in Central Park?? So excited :)

1 day to go

Tomorrow I’ll be running my first ever marathon - London. I’m actually quite excited. Thought I’d be nervous as hell by now but I’m not nervous at all. Really looking forward to the whole experience. Everyone is saying, there’s no better year than this year to do it what with the Olympics etc.

I’m running for Cancer Research. And the marathon mileage will go towards the 2012km Gold Challenge I’m doing. Here’s my fundraising video:

Current marathon world record holder Patrick Makau at the London Marathon Expo today. You could feel the whole crowd just be in awe when he was talking. Wow!

And tomorrow, I get to run with Paula Radcliffe. What an honour:)

Another medal to add to the collection - 100m Sprint, Olympic Stadium as part of the Gold Challenge Day.
Was so awesome to meet the other Cancer Research fundraisers and be in the Olympic Park. The venues look amazing. 
100m at the start line looks pretty long. Then its all over in seconds. Was amazing :)
