Vanessa Bartlett, track star

Straight from the London 2012 Games to your PC or Mobile, British track star, and my “Internet Sister,” Vanessa Bartlett will be running 13.1 miles on Sunday 12 May in the Chester Half Marathon. If we help her raise enough money for her wonderful charity based in London & the South, St. Mungo’s homeless aid, she’s threatening to send sweaty-faced Instagrams from the half-marathon route.

You’ll be able to see VB’s Instagrams on your mobile of course, or, lookie-lookie, right on this very page! 🙂

    Why stop at 2? I’m pulllllling 4U!

    And honest, congrats VB – so great that you’re doing this!

    I’ve mostly done 5 & 10k’s and only 2 longer races, a 15k and a half marathon. Even though the 1/2M is longer, it was actually easier than the 15k. The 1/2 was a totally flat course, and I ran the first 2/3 with a friend who was a little slower so she kept me at an easier pace, and it was also overcast – the sun peeked out just a few minutes before I crossed the finish line.

    By contrast, the 15k from hell was THE hilliest thing I’ve ever done. And it was a flippin hot day! Oh and the whole thing was on steaming black asphalt. Uggh. I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to survive that thing.

    However, we KNOW you’re going to survive this thing, because:
