Hello.

Ask me anything   I'm Emma O. I spend my days drawing, coding, eating, running and moaning. I've lost about 70lb and ran my first half marathon last year and will be training for my first marathon this year so I talk about running and weight loss quite a lot! I have epilepsy and tend to rant a lot about that. Oh and I like porridge/oatmeal a little too much...

I’m about to go around to my friends house wearing my boyfriends PJ bottoms because all I brought to his was skinny jeans.

This is not the weather for skinny jeans.

HOT.

I’m at the boy’s and forgot my garmin so had to use runkeeper today.

It was a brutal run. I was aiming for at least 13 miles and managed just over 13 km (8 ish miles I think?). You can’t really tell from the photo but I was dripping in sweat, it was so so hot! I really struggled.

Britain is well known for it’s shite weather but now that I have to train for marathon it’s bloody glorious out! I’m really not cut out for running in this heat…

Going to need to suck it up if I’m going to cross that finish line though. Eek!

Flat Flat Flat.

Solicitors have rang! Exchange date is set for the 4th August and then completion is the 8th. Hopefully anyway…

I’m trying not to get excited until the keys are in our hands but… I’M VERY NEARLY A HOMEOWNER!

Is it too early to start packing?

It’s my little bro’s birthday today! I had no choice but to dig out some old photos.

He’s a bit taller than me now though :P

TELL ME THE CHIPSHOP DELICACIES IN YOUR AREA

I feel like this makes me sound so fat and liek it’s all I eat (I do not for the record I don’t really like takeaway it makes me feel guilty and greasy after haha) btut I’m intrigued after seeing photos/hearing about the deep…

Back on the Isle of Man it’s chips, cheese and gravy.

'A more recent claim for the title of national dish would be the ubiquitous chips, cheese and gravy. This dish, which is similar to poutine, is found in most of the island's fast-food outlets, and consists of thick cut chips, covered in shredded Cheddar cheese and topped with a thick gravy.

Mmmmm…

News! News! News!
- This weekend might be the last weekend I run along Leeds Canal (my favourite place to run). It may be emotional… I’m aiming for 13+ miles so it’s more likely to be sweaty and painful but still… I’m going to miss running there (or riding camels).
- We’ve had a call from the solicitors saying we should hopefully get the keys to the flat on the 1st August, we’ll get some confirmation tomorrow. We were initially told the 6th June so I’m not getting my hopes up too much but our deposit is with the solicitors so things are getting close.
- I’ve got over my desire to quit the marathon. I was really down when I posted that and when I was running last night I felt amazing, I was imagining crossing the finishing line and how proud I’ll be. I’ve come to realise, it doesn’t matter if I run or crawl across that finish line, as long as I finish. I’ve been putting far too much pressure on myself. Training for a marathon is hard, it’s even harder if I’m having seizures every other week, I should cut myself some slack. If I don’t run it all, there will be other marathons. Or I could discover that 26.2 miles is a ridiculous distance and stick to 10Ks and half marathons ;)
- Not really news worthy but I got ID’d this morning buying painkillers. Considering I’m nearly 26 I should probably take this as a compliment… I think…
