Running club awards evening

Friday night was my running club’s annual awards evening.  It was to be my first proper night out since having Oscar and I was looking forward to it!

I had even treated myself to having my hair put up at the hairdressers beforehand.  Something until now I’d only reserved for doing at my wedding and sixth form leaving ball!  Worth it though, – my hair is in an awful state at the moment.  Something to do with little grubby hands smearing milk and slobber in it and tugging on strands at every available opportunity!

Crisis avoided!WDAC Christmas do party table There are a large number of awards given out each year including a ‘Runner of the Year’ for each of the six coached groups as chosen by the lead coach for that group.  There are also awards for the ‘Runner’s Runner of the Year’.  A male and female member of the club are voted for anonymously by the members, who must produce solid reasons for voting for their choice.  The person from each gender who receives the most votes wins the award. Each year I put together the videos for the Runner’s Runner of the Year which are then shown to the members before the winners are announced.

Having not been such a large part of the club this year due to my pregnancy, it was lovely to read through all of the nominations for the award and discover what everyone had been up to.  As always, it left me feeling very inspired and ready for 2017!

Speaking of awards, it was brought to my attention earlier this week that I have been nominated and shortlisted for awards at both The Running Awards (under category Community > Blog) and also the Run Ultra Blogger Award.  If you have a spare five minutes I’d really appreciate a vote by clicking on the two badges below.  (Many thanks!)

  1. Your hair looks lovely- I have never even thought of getting a hairdresser to do my hair, although even getting around to booking a haircut takes a while (last got mine cut in July, and finally have one for next week).
    I’ve had a few afternoon teas with friends, and on Friday our early years team are going out for dinner. We have a breakfast at work which should be good too.

    1. Thank you. :) I am rubbish at booking in for a hair cut, and like you, I go ages in between appointments. Just fancied treating myself to an up-do this Christmas, and I’m so glad I did. I’d never have had my hands free for long enough with Oscar otherwise!

    1. Thanks Anna! :)
      Straighten is my go-to as well. I find that if I attempt an up-do and it all goes wrong I end up feeling stressed out and with kinky hair, so more often than not, it’s not worth the risk! Haha!
