Ok Folks... It's Shameless Plug Time


It's nearly that time of year again.


The London Marathon is upon us, so it's time I started shamelessly plugging my book again.


So anyone out there reading this blog who hasn't yet bought it...



If so, why not????


It's time to make amends.


So go forth to Amazon, or Waterstones or wherever and get your copy now.


And find out all about how a serial non runner turned herself into a marathon mum...


Failing that you can at least enter my competition to tell me (if you're a runner) the strangest thing you've seen out running, and if you're not the strangest thing you've experienced when exercising. And if you don't exercise at all you can write me an essay on why reading my book: Running on Empty: Diary of a Marathon Mum has at least inspired you to think about it...


For the record strange things that have happened to me include: tripping over my toes in front of our local hospital and nearly getting run over by a nurse, getting lost on a mountain in Spain with a dog, getting lost on a hillside in England without a dog, and my favourite, getting locked out of Waterloo station in just my running gear five minutes before I was supposed to be somewhere else.


To enter the competition email me at: jules@marathonmum.com before 22 April (marathon day) and I'll send the winner a signed copy of the book plus FLM fleece.


Go on, you know it makes sense....

I think I should take at least half the credit for the locked out of Waterloo with no money no phone and late for our appointment. I seem to remember being the one to suggest a nice little trot along the Thames....

My best running story last year was when I did laps round the park and met a group of young women who cheered me on each successive lap. I saw them a few weeks later and one of them cried out "Oh it's Running Woman" and they proceeded to keep my spirits up every time I passed, inspiring another picnicking group to do the same.

But that's not very bizarre and I expect you have rules for family!
