Earlier this month, I posted about Mo Farah’s pledge to move from Metres to Miles in 2014, and how I was considering running my first marathon, too.
Well I’ve only gone and done it. I’ve signed up for The Loch Ness Marathon this September! Eeek!
I thought: this is the year. It’s the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It’s the Year of Homecoming across Scotland. Mo’s stepping up the distance. And I signed up!
There was something extra special about signing up for this race: it’s the first race I’ve signed up for in my married name- since I’ll be an ‘auld married wummin’ by then! That was exciting, too!
Be prepared to be very bored with my marathon chat, folks! 😉
Evening all: I’m just dropping by with a quick question to all of my super-knowledgeable friends, during my short visit home from Portavadie and before yet another busy weekend. We have our family Secret Santa day tomorrow!
I need a holiday!
Those of you who are fans will have seen that, for Mo Farah, 2014 is about moving from metres to miles.
In 2014, Mo will run a marathon.
Now, the question I have is: can I do the same?
I’ve been eyeing up The Loch Ness Marathon for some time, following some twitter encouragement from @pt_steveb . I must admit, I am seriously tempted. But, can this serial short-distance jogger of 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathons step up and do the big one?
Well, I’ve done it. I’ve taken the social media world by storm!
I’ve set up a TartanJogger page on Facebook! 😀
So, the way I see it, you have two choices. Number One: ignore this post. Number Two: put your real life on hold and head over to FB to like meeeeee!
Since starting my blog, I’ve had FB linked to my personal facebook page. That meant that my friends and family
were treated to had no choice but to read my blog posts. Ha! Now, my timeline is not dotted with running related posts quite as much!
I’ve been on twitter, G+, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Path and BlogLovin’ for some time. I reckon I’ve now completed the set.
Where do you link your blog posts to? Would you say you’re social media savvy, or a SM novice? Does it matter? 😉
