Week 10 of training for my first marathon and it’s time for the next big milestone: my first race. I’ve never run in a race setting before, and I’m on my own during the race. Thankfully I did have my girlfriend and my parents come along to cheer me on and calm my nerves before the start.
I chose the Thames Meander Half Marathon – the course starts in Kingston and follows the River Thames downstream to Kew Gardens where you turn around and run all the way back! It was a beautiful route and one I can highly recommend.
Having had some trouble with my knee over the last two weeks I was really not sure how this would go, so I’m very happy with the outcome!
The marathon is only 8 weeks away!
I wanted to visit Stuart, who has now moved to Italy, and Stuart wanted to go snow hiking, and so this video was born…
I’m going to attempt some more regular vlogging/general videos this year as I only managed 4 last year… let’s see if that actually happens…

This is the third stop motion travel video I’ve made, and the second Emily and I have made together – Check out my YouTube channel for the New Zealand and Japan videos.
