This is my new site about my attempts to get fitter, run the London Marathon, and not fall off my road bike.
Shortly after starting this blog, I fell on my right hand and completely shattered my elbow. So I’m writing a lot about recovering from injury, while trying to stay fit, and have had to defer my London marathon until 2014.
I’m 38 years old, a web developer, ex-dancer, mother of a teenager, and a fitness nerd. I took up running almost four years ago, having never run before, and so far have run several half marathons. This year I have a place in the The London Marathon, so I’m enjoying taking my distance up to the full marathon.
I really like the idea of doing triathlon despite being a terrible cyclist and a worse swimmer. However, it is all about the challenge! I thought I’d tackle the cycling first. I’m considering adding some sort of widget to the sidebar of this site to tally up the number of times I fall off my bike.
This site is running on Perch – the really little content management system developed by my company. The design is pretty much the default Quill Feather, with a few tweaks and a photo of my running and cycling shoes.
