I got to speak to BBC London Radio yesterday about Boston
They were discussing the bombs in Boston and asking listeners what effect this had on their thoughts and plans for this weekends London Marathon.
The link is here, skip to the 2:18 mark and hear what I had to say. I just wanted to get the message across that us that we are all together and will help each other when the time calls for it.
Thanks to every single one of the 190+ who reached Rundemcrew last night for making it a very special session. Hope to see many of you on the road or by the road side for the London Marathon this Sunday. by glennhancock http://bit.ly/10el9tY
I’m in there somewhere ;)
I Love Wednesdays
As you may or may not know, me and Shameek started our own running crew in Hackney Wick on Wednesdays. RDCY Hackney.
There’s been ups and downs but I know that I want to make it work and continue to see and run with my friends every Wednesday. For the last couple of months I’ve had really bad days on Wednesdays but when the clock strikes 6 it all starts to get better. The anticipation grows and I can’t wait to lace up with my crew.
We’re small, there’s about 6 regulars including myself and Shameek but so much quality there. Lemara and Ounie (above) took to the crew in the best possible way and keep it going now. They’ve never let me down! It’s with people like this that the foundation for an empire are made from.
Charlie Dark, founder of Run Dem Crew often reminisce of the early days of his crew, where him and 6 friends would meet in his kitchen and then run a small loop of Victoria Park. I now know what those memories are like too. I experience it every Wednesday when we’re all chatting pre-run in my living room.
We’re only just getting started, I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.
2 races that changed my life.
Well a couple of weekends ago I smashed my 10k PB! I took to the Where’s Wally?! 10k in Victoria Park and came home in a time of 43:30. Shaving about 3 minutes off my old british 10k time. The years only just started but it’s good so far! All whilst dressed like this!
