  1. Good luck for this weekend x

  2. Hey Amanda, I love reading your pieces!!! I am part of the organising team for the Selwyn Running Festival held annually in November and we would love to have you come and race at our event. I think it would be a great chance for you to better your 1.27 half marathon PB… Let me know what you think

    • Hi Michael, thanks for the positive feedback I’m glad you like reading my blog. I will definitely be back up and running by November, not sure if I’ll get a PB though with six months off but never say never! I would be keen to come and take on the other hoggets and vie for a spot to be one of the first to leap out of the drafting gates. 🙂

      • Well there is a free entry waiting for you if you would like it… There is more info about the Festival on our website if you want to have a look. Loved the ‘Fifty Shades of Chafe’ by the way
