Hi, I'd like to introduce myself and give you all chance to find out more about me.

But first, I did promise that if I got through to this stage I would share my granola bar recipe.....so here it is. 

 Jens granola bar

200g porridge oats, 200g mixed seeds, 100g dried fruit ( be imaginative, mango, cranberry, blueberries are good!)

100g butter, 100g light muscovado sugar, 3 tblsp honey melted together.

mix wet and dry ingedients, tip into a lined tin 18x25cm approx, press down lightly.  

Bake 30mins 160degee fan oven.

drizzle with dark choc (optional) remove from tin when cool, cut into squares, eat and enjoy. Simple!!

I started running 3 yrs ago, never having run before because I wanted a new challenge. I bought my first running shoes on my 50th bday. I started a run/walk programme that i'd read in RW and then entered a 10k race 4 months ahead and trained for that goal. the feeling as I crossed that finish line was amazing!I was hooked! I've gone on to run all distances, but I enjoy the discipline of marathon training the most. I've done 2 marathons,first in 4.40 and then 4 27. I'm really excited to see what I can achieve with help and support from RW/Asics. I look forward to being able to share my progress with the forum.

Seren these bars are seriously awesome! can not gush enough about them!!

06/12/2012 at 08:13

I like you already - there's nothing worse than waiting around for responses not knowing when someone'll be online.

Gotta go - the oven's on preheat!

Hi Seren, my favourite RW thead at the moment has to be the Asics26.2-2013 started by Knight rider. The guys I met on there prior to bootcamp, and everyone on there now are just great! I do like dipping into new discussions aswell though and putting my answers in to random questions on gear, yoga, infections etc!

With regards to granola bars... I always take a supply to events...and I'm always willing to share   and I'll be happy to supply any Llanelli event upon request!

Hi G&W, Sleepy Bear, how did the bars turn out then??

Hi jenf. I only met you briefly at BC on the track after the "photo" lap round the track I think? It's you and me and against the boys!!! Please can we be / stay friends no matter what . All the very best! You have a very inspirational story. Loving the first running shoes buy on your 50th! xox

Hi JenF! Didn't have as much chance to catch up with you at bootcamp (read: eat your food) as I would have liked! Hope campaigning is going well and you still have fingernails left!!

evening all    just in from work, followed by a great session in gym, does anyone else like playing in the heavy wts corner? As well as loving running I get great satisfaction from lifting wts.

 I'm just off for a walk around the forum now......
