Simplyhealth Great Run Series

Well, something very strange and surreal has happened this month. Being the swimmer I am, I have always declared that I do not run. I love exercise and always have but, regardless of which sport I am involved in, I only run if it is necessary. Four years of county hockey and I would run around the pitch as much as was needed during a game but get me to warm up by running round the pitch and I would moan and grumble and always be the last one round.

Heathrow

Strength in Teamwork

Over the last few weeks I began to feel I was morphing in to a well know film actor who got stuck living in an airport terminal. In my case it was Heathrow Terminal 5 and the definite low was getting changed in to another outfit in the facilities so that I was ready to go at my next destination. Coupled with this comes the comments from my team when they do see me of ‘hello stranger’ or ‘who are you?’!! Managing your own role and managing a team whilst constantly out and about can feel like a juggling act.
