Marathon Mum. Marathon Man. Get the joke? Both feature obsessiveness, shady characters from Europe, lots of running, and most notably, torture. This online journal began as I trained for the 2005 London Marathon. I successfully finished the race, but MarathonMum lives on. After all, life as a mother isn't a sprint, it's a marathon.
Seems only appropriate that in the weekend that Bradley Wiggins became the first Brit to win the Tour de France that I include a picture taken at the Herne Hill Velodrome, where he used to train. My sons now go there every Saturday. Will they become the next Wiggo? Only time will tell.
