Some Very Big News

Today I am really excited to share some big, BIG news which came quite out of the blue last week. Every so often, emails from PR companies and brands stand out amongst all the nonsense in my inbox, and when I opened this particular one I had to pick my jaw up off the floor…

Let’s get straight to the point…

I’ve been offered the opportunity to run the London Marathon in April with Reebok, and I’ve said HELL YES!

I’ve accepted a place as a part of the Reebok London Marathon team, and will be helping them celebrate the release of their new shoe, the Reebok FloatRide.

In addition to the marathon place, Reebok have kitted me out with a selection of shoes and apparel and are providing me with a coach to make sure I arrive at the starting line in the best shape possible. This means that my training over the next few weeks until race day is going to change a little, but I’m really excited to get some professional guidance and hopefully run my best marathon yet!

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some training insights and my thoughts on the shoes, as well as my usual assortment of running content. I’m still going to run the same Spring ultras that I had planned, but I think I’ll be working a lot harder during the week to try and get some speed to take to London with me.

2017 is turning into quite the year! After yet another disappointing result in the 2017 general ballot, I’m delighted to finally be running the UK’s most famous race – the London Marathon.

Thank you so much to Reebok for making this happen; I’m a very excited runner!

  6. Congrats Rhona, your gonna love this one, l did it in the last century 1999, haha, hopefully you will get a privileged position at the start, if not, you will find it soooo frustrating having to walk/jog/dodge for a couple of miles until you really get into run mode, apart from that it is a wonderful experience ..l think you can beat my time of 3.47, so good luck…
