The 8 stages of Running


 1. When you realise your fat girl jeans are getting too tight.



2. Then…

dont want to run


3. But you remember your shiny pristine new Nikes

 ‘Oooh yeaaah, look at me. Check me out, I have got this. I am an ATHLETE!


4. The first mile. 




5. And then you get cocky.


I can go for miles…..


6. Until you hit the wall. 


Bastard Wall.


7. OOOoooh there’s the Finish line….


I did it!! I’m an ATHLETE! I’m a CHAMP!! Where can I sign up for a MARATHON?!


8. The Next Day.


It just all hurts so much.

    Brilliant, this is so true! So many times I’ve run and run and then realised I also have to run and run back home! I enjoy running and want to get back into it now that baby is here. I don’t think I’ll manage a marathon though 🙂 xx. #picknmix

    Very good! I have to admit to being a bit of a running addict though – I just love it! I’m currently 17 weeks into my third pregnancy and still going strong! #picknmix
