2010 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year Award

I was really shocked when I got the call yesterday from the BBC to say I had been shortlisted for this award.  I've made the final 10 and am so pleased.  There is a ballot next week to choose the final 3 and to be one of them would be amazing.  There is really strong competition from the other finalists though who have all had an amazing year in their sport so good luck to everyone and fingers crossed I can make the final 3.  Would be a fantastic end to a challenging year for me.  BBC article below.

Swansea Bay 10k 2010

The sun was shining again for this years Swansea 10k.  I always enjoy competing in this race and use it as a time trial as its a really good course.  Although it was a nice day there was too much wind to guarantee beating the course record I set last year.  Still a good race though and I finished in 24 mins 28 sec, so not too bad considering I had no one to race with!
