Happy New Year!
Already January is flying past! After a great New Year with good mates in Germany, it’s been what feelt like a super quick month training, prepping and getting pretty psyched for the next adventures…
Recently I teamed up with Sophie from Hinturland and her sister Mary to be part of their running film entry for the BMC women in film competition. My friend Cat Slater and I had a great day in the Lakes, with laughs, good views, a bit of mud and a brilliant chance to film on a brisk winters day. Keep your eyes peeled for our entry, coming soon!
Now, I'm in the process of packing- I tell you, it’s easier to get ready on a race day…
The reason for this strategic packing is that I am about to spend the next couple of months in the French Alps. I am really excited to be heading to the Chamonix region while I spend some time interning with Epic TV. Epic TV produce as well as broadcast unique adventure and extreme sports footage online, as well as 'know their stuff' when it comes to good sports gear. I look forward to this time working with them and getting to know the team.
Now the snow has arrived there, it will be very wintery and wonderful in those mountains, and I look forward to the travel adventure - a chance to also get some training in somewhere different :).
As well as being based in the Alps, both Nikki and I will be also travelling to the Atlas Mountains, to recce the area and then help The Right Altitude with a running training camp in March. I am really chuffed to go and explore and train in another set of beautiful scenery. I've written more info about this trip here and do check out their facebook page about future trips.
My plans for races this year are in my head, and I'm excited for whats potentially in store - more to follow on these! I hope you are able to get out running at the moment and are excited about your exercise plans for year ahead.
Before I get back to the packing scene – hope you like the new blog lay out. I will post more info soon as I make my way on my travels :)
As Nikki, and many others have uttered before....."the mountains are calling..."
