The 3 M's

Since December last year I have had 3 milestones to achieve in a relatively short period - Move, get Married and run the Marathon.  2/3 have now been completed so now its time for 100% focus on those 26.2 miles!!

I spoke on a previous post about moving to our new house - or home as we now call it.  We've not done much to it yet aside from settle in and get use to our new surroundings.  But now the better weather is coming I can feel the start of our first project is imminent!!  (Well for Andy at least, I'll assume my usual advisory/co-ordination type role and then come into my own when we need to do the fun stuff like pick furniture or wall colours etc.  I'll leave the hard work to my new husband!).
Andy and I tied the knot on his 40th birthday on the 28th Feb.  We had a fantastic day surrounded my our wonderful family & friends and our brady bunch family is now complete.  I would like to say a massive thank-you to those that donated to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research as our wedding gift - as we have everything we need it felt the right thing to do for our gift to be a donation to help cure and eradicate blood cancers.

I also have to mention the totally awesome band we had, who made the evening reception a real party.  If you are ever in need of a band then I highly recommend these guys.  Check them out (and also see some of the photos they took of the party themselves):-

So the final M is now drawing near. I think its roughly 5 weeks away.  So after a week in Lanzarote for our honeymoon I am home and have switched my beach flip-flops for my scruffy old runners and back in the swing of things.  My first run yesterday felt great.  I was going to keep it fairly short and build myself up but as I was feeling great I covered nearly 10 miles.  Am amazed that I could every feel that a ten mile run is fun!!

My big sis is heading down this weekend so I will have company on this weeks long run.  We have 3 hours to cover this week eeekkkk!
