    Mud glorious Mud (or lack of it until this week!!!I feel sad today as my favourite events have finished for another year, Cross Country is the best thing ever, there’s a run, there’s tea, there’s rolls, there’s cake but most of the amazing team spirit and great fun that LFR bring to each and every […]

  • Man cannot run on cake alone……he also needs Gin!

    A week in the life of…..Captain Dan…Thursday I was moping around the house, so Vicky suggested I go for a run, then it started raining! Another hour passed and I made it to the bedroom to change! Eventually I brought enough enthusiasm to the party to get out the door and drove to Long Marston […]

  • Team Parkrun day

    Team parkrun dropped in this weekend and LFR were in huge numbers to assist. This is where a national lottery funded athlete visits parkrun to give something back to the community, encourages, answers questions and tail runs. We were luck enough to have Zoe Shipperley, a silver medalist for England Hockey at the 2014 Commonwealth […]

  • Rushmere with a buggy!

    You may think I’m a little mad but since Vicky bought us a running buggy for Christmas, to enable us to go out running with Edison, I’ve been taking on new challenges including Rushmere Parkrun. Today was supposed to be a gentle stretch before Bearbrook 10k but with Arriana away I could go flat out! […]

  • Beds AAA 10k

    A gaggle of LFR’s hit Bedford by storm on Friday night just before the first rain storm of summer! It was the county 10k championship. Great fun was had by all, with a handful of hugely awesome pb’s, Chris, Will, Matt and myself. It was great to see that LBAC do actually race on Friday […]

  • Drunk in 8 minutes aka the beer mile

    Yes it’s that time of year again when the local Coop sells out of 4 packs of 5% cans. So for those who have never done it – oh buy 4 cans of 330ml alcoholic beverages. Down one then run 400m, repeat 4 times without being sick (or you get a forfeit lap 🤢) So […]

  • Greensand Relay by Captain Dan

    What more could a Fun runner want than a trail run that ends at a pub!!!! This was made for us (and we were one of the two teams at the first event apparently). It’s a 34 mile relay split over 6 legs from Tiddenfoot to The Crown pub at Northill, following the Greensand Ridge. […]

  • New York Marathon by Duncan Watson

    I am pleased to say that I survived the New York Marathon with a time of 4.44.49. It was an amazing experience that will never be forgotten; wondering around the Big Apple the day afterwards with 50,000 others wearing your medal is a fabulous feeling as everyone is saying “Con-grat-u-lations” I did struggle due to a […]

  • Tokyo here we go by Pam O’Connell

    For the second year running I didn’t get a place in the Tokyo ballot so that was that…  A very good friend and her daughter booked with Sports Tours but I didn’t really have the funds. Then Max and Becs also booked their places and the temptation became too much – Sports Tours had one […]

I was currently spending up to £90.00 per month on my fitness regime and about 8 hours a week in time!I was getting no-where fast with my weight loss and seemed to be working really hard at the gym. Something needed to change……On the horizon looming […]
