Well the plan was 2 marathons in 2 days in Cleethorpes as part of the Maravan festival of running put on by VigilantesRunning.
The marathon consisted of 7 laps around Thorpe park. It was flipping cold and icy at the start. However, the support was brilliant and I got to sample a different cake at the end of each lap which is a major motivational tool.
Unfortunately I never managed the marathon on Sunday; my body and legs were screaming out for a rest.
A massive thank you to Darren at VigilantesRunning for donating £50 to the the Tigers.
No. 10 on the Joggling 100 Marathon list was the Leicester Marathon on the 23rd October 2016.
I had the opportunity a few days before the race to get interviewed by BBC Radio Leicester where I got to talk about Tigers and Joggling.
It was my quickest Joggling marathon to date and I managed to finish in under 4 1/2 hours for the first time.
I joggled my way through the Mablethorpe Marathon on the 2nd October. The support and organisation was great as always. There were marshals at every corner and junction along the route, and there were loads of water stops along the way (roughly about every 3 miles). I haven't joggled a marathon for a while so I took my time and stopped at all the checkpoints to give my arms a rest and to have a natter with the lovely friendly marshals and supporters. After about 4 hours joggling I was starting to feel it so the last few miles were quite hard. Hopefully this means the next marathon will be easier now.
I now have a rest for 3 weeks until the next marathon (no. 10 on the list) in Leicester on the 23rd October.
Northants Shires and Spires
35 Mile ultra marathon in the Northants countryside.
The event was organised by Go Beyond who organise a range of marathons and ultra marathons around the country.

Tiger Juggling Balls
Here is a photo of my new Tiger Juggling balls - they're slightly bigger and heavier (180g) than normal thuds so give the arms a good workout. They should go well with various tiger outfits.
