i've been bitten by the marathon bug.

So I completed my first (not so power walking) walking marathon at the weekend. I spent a lot of time waiting around for other team members and flipping toilet queues, so it took us 9 hours. It was possibly the hardest thing I have ever had to do. It's like physically and mentally draining, and very emotional. The walk was raising money for breast cancer research, which is an amazing cause. I'm so proud that I've done it and raised over £100. I will post pictures of the bra (which I decorated to wear for the walk) and my medal.
As of next week I'm going to start running to train for a running half marathon and I'm planning on doing the moonwalk again next year! Also I really need to lose weight before university as all the girls on my course are blatently going to be tiny! I'm currently failing at cutting out unhealthy crap and fizzy drinks. NEED DIET INSPIRATION PLEASE!
The weathers finally getting nice. The boy and I are planning a trip to the beach at the weekend maybe. A lovely walk and pub lunch would be good I think. Also I'm thinking of all the things I want to do with my long free summer, well apart from the holidays. I want a few beach days, a trip to the science and natural history museum, visit some family and go to london lots. I expect lots of summery garden parties with pimms will happen :)
