So ... it ' s me ... and yes , I ' m still alive ( ob - viously ... - Snape ). So - I was talking to my brother a couple of weeks ago , and both of us are restarting things in a more serious manner . So , he has told me that my Christmas gift this year from him is an entry to the Flying Pig half ... Yay ! I can ' t wait ... it was my first ever half back in 2009 , and I ' m so excited to be going back there for the 20th anniversary race ! Woo hoo !! So - I ' ll be posting my training and stuff in here , and I ' ll be starting soon as I ' m basically completely rebuilding . So , looking forward to the support I know and love from this group and that has guided me through my previous big races .
