Back to the Stadium


Last March I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life.  I won a place in the a once in a lifetime Olympic Park Run and was one of the first people to cross the finish line in the newly completed Olympic Stadium.

Well, the National Lottery are doing it again… with the Anniversary Run on 21 July 2013.

And I’ve got a place!

I’m going #backtothestadium and I can’t wait because this time I’ll be joined by David.

It’s another 5 mile run around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, past the iconic velodrome where Sir Chris Hoy became the most sucessful British Olympian ever, the Copper Box where we discovered that handball is amazing, the Aquatic Centre where Michael Phelps became the person to win most gold medals ever and into the stadium… that stadium where David Rhodesia blasted to the fastest 800m ever, Jessica Ennis powered to gold, Greg Rutherford leapt to glory, Mo Farah had two dream Saturdays to win 5,000m and 10,000m golds and Usain Bolt proved he is the fastest man in the world.

Can’t wait.  I may not sleep until July!
