Sunday mornings are for reading the papers? Not for me. I headed up to central London to become part of the Matt Roberts team, massaging VIPs
after their 13 mile run round the great parks in London.
Luckily the weather gods provided the perfect running conditions. Not too hot, but a gorgeous sunny day. Trees with their autumnal colours looking like they’d been brushed on by a rainbow.
Bright and early I headed up to London hoping that the security guard would have my name on the list, luckily it was.
So who did I get to meet? Well the first person I bumped into was Ben Fogle, a lovely guy who you can’t help but slightly swoon over with that sexy voice and rugged good looks, his wife is stunning as well and what a lovely couple.
I heard earlier in the day that Matt Roberts was there leading a group of kids like a pied piper.
So with my massage thumbs switched on, a steady stream on VIPs came onto the couches from 11am until we stopped around 2pm.
Celebrity runners this year included Katherine Jenkins, Jenni Falconer, Sophie Raworth, and Adam Woodyatt
(Ian from Eastenders).
I am most proud of Team Glamour from the Condé Nast Magazine group. I started working with a group from their editorial staff earlier in the year when most hadn’t even started to run. I felt like a proud Mum as they all came into the tent after completing their run. I would happily work with any of them again and they were raising money for a great cause, MIND, a charity involved in mental health problems.
It was definitely worth getting up bright and early to say I was part of this amazing experience and I would happily give up another day in the future if the opportunity arose.
What’s planned for this week? Tomorrow I’m off for my third Kung Fu 1:1 session. I absolutely love it. I started to learn 15 years ago but work got in the way. Now as I am my own boss I can give myself time off to go!
Have a great week and don’t forget to ‘Pay it Forward’ if you get the chance.
