Pauline B Run for life

You are never too old have a go at something different, that’s what I try and tell myself.

I’ve always enjoyed being outside, walking, cycling, even roller blading, but of late I’ve not just been pounding the keyboard on my latest book, but the streets as well! I’ve now managed to run 10km and recently I decided to run a 10km run for Cancer Research UK – Run for Life

Set our watches

I’ve seen that events for Run For Life are taking place all over the UK, but as I don’t live there these days, I decided to do one of my own here on the island! I know it is hot here now, but ignoring the heat I invited my two wonderful running friends, Sabrina and Susan and although our abilities and ages differ (mid-thirties, mid-fifties and early sixties) we hit the pavements running on Saturday 20th June and completed our 10km charity run / walk. And to add more excitement to this our Just Giving Page already has £430 and more is expected to be added too!

We have been overwhelmed with support from so many people and are honoured and humbled at everyone’s generosity. Sadly, this dreadful disease has a nasty habit of affecting everyone in one way or another. So if putting on our trainers and legging it will help make a difference, then we’ll do it all over again ☺

Sabrina, Susan and me!

As for continuing my running, the answer is yes! I’m now training for a half marathon, 21km and who knows one day I just might make the full marathon!

You have to set the bar as high as possible sometimes and I promise to let you know how it all goes. And just in case you are wondering on which age group I fall into, I am the one on the right of this photo.

Who Am I?

I am a Yorkshire lass, but have lived in several different locations including over the years; Suffolk, Surrey and Holland. Today, I live on the beautiful volcanic island of Lanzarote with my husband and our two gorgeous rescue doggies.

Years ago I gained a BA (Hons) degree from the Open University, today I spend my time writing fiction. I have four books published, plus a 20 minute short festive story. I am busy working on book 5 which is scheduled to be published in 2014.

My passion is to write about events that happen in life and change everything for those involved as well as those caught up in the maelstrom. I want my characters to sit at your side, steal your attention and sweep you up in their story. Stories that will bring tears to your eyes, have you laughing out loud and sometimes, what they share with you, will stay in your hearts for a very long time.

I am also the girl behind those other bubbly glasses who runs the exciting new and dynamic Indie Author site Famous Five Plus. To find out all about what happen at Famous Five Plus visit
