September Rundown

Hey, what happened to September? That month absolutely flew by, perhaps because we were quite busy. We enjoyed the last of the summer...

Robbie returned to school and Emma went for the first time...

Robbie got a scooter for his 7th birthday and we rode the 'Dotto' train by the sea...

My parents came to visit and we had a great time battling wind and rain...

We said goodbye to warm sun and hello to loads of rain...

 And best of all, the kids and I took part in a race together...

Ran: 15x = 76.7 miles
Cycled 3x = 34.1 miles
1 Race (Bexhill 10K)
1 Children's Race (500 metres) with Robbie and Emma.

Not a huge month mileage wise, but we had some great fun with walks in the countryside, a picnic in the woods, days at the beach, Robbie's birthday, and the best running experience I can remember, encouraging Emma in her race and watching her go for it and enjoy it. I cannot overstate how much I LOVED running alongside her! I hope there'll be many more of those to come!


  1. Might not have been a huge month but it was a good month.

  2. Sounds like a good month to me! Love that picture of Robbie - he looks so determined!

  3. Sounds like a great month. Let's hope October will be just as good!

  4. You beat my monthly mileage - again - by 15 miles. Love the pictures of your two children running, both with good style. Try to keep the enjoyment there and I'm sure they'll each do well.

  5. It sounds like a perfect month!

  6. New reader! :)
    From your profile, I see you ran the Edinburgh marathon, how amazing. My goal is to do a full marathon one day. I actually lived in Scotland for 4 years and have visited Edinburgh - such a beaaautiful place!
