Hey Betties!

So, today I enjoyed(?!) a 30-minute training session in my local park  – 9-min run/1-min walk x 3, not including warm-up and cool down -  as part of my 10k training plan and, all in all, I’ve been surprised how well I’ve taken to running. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I’m finding it all quite exhilarating! Blame the endorphins, but I’m discovering that this running malarkey isn’t so bad after all!

I wanted to tell you about the running event I’m taking part in – and if you fancy it, it’s not too late to sign up and join me!

It’s called the Boutique Run and it takes place in Battersea Park, London, on Saturday, July 9th, 2011. Hosted by Boutique Sport (www.boutiquesport.com), this women-only fitness event is billed as the ultra-glam way to work out – offering a unique combination of sport, fashion, beauty, pampering and live entertainment that is designed to encourage women to maintain active and balanced lifestyles.

There are lockers on site for your possessions, then after taking part in your 5k or 10k run, you get to freshen up with a hot shower, get changed and then enjoy your reward of a well-deserved free glass of champagne while being spoilt at five star pampering stations and nail bars.

Entry isn’t cheap at £38.50, but worth it in my opinion to take part in an event which is much more glamorous than regular running events, plus have the opportunity to celebrate my achievement with like-minded women at the after-party. Plus, you can also help to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer (www.breakthrough.org.uk) through sponsorship in the process!

Check it out and/or sign up at www.boutiquesport.com and if you do, let me know!
