From 1:39 to DNF…? When the half-marathon doesn’t go quite to plan…

It’s 5pm, it’s 22 degrees outside and I’m on my sofa in my pyjamas. To say today didn’t go to plan is the understatement of the century. My first half-marathon of my five race ambition for MS-UK, and it all very nearly ended in the worst way possible. It was a 6am start this morning… Continue reading From 1:39 to DNF…?

A trip to Bristol and a catch up with MS-UK

On Wednesday this week, Jas and I took Luna on the road and we headed over to Bristol for the day. We were visiting Oasis Academy, Brislington, where we held two interactive sessions for the students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10. The day didn’t get off to the best start, as I very… Continue reading A trip to Bristol and a catch up with MS-UK

It’s been a while…

I am back, after a two week hiatus. It’s been an interesting time; it’s true what everyone says about raising investment. It’s hard and it takes a long time… For the past two Sundays I really either a) didn’t feel inspired to write a blog post because I was too tired and/or emotionally exhausted or… Continue reading It’s been a while…

My first time running with a bright yellow flag on my back…

This weeks update will be a little short; another week and another round of investor meetings and calls. We’re still on the investor trail, which to be honest has filled most of the week. We’ve been busy (when are we not?!) but it doesn’t feel like much to report… On Wednesday night we were invited… Continue reading My first time running with a bright yellow flag on my back…

Just missing out on a top 10 finish…

Tonight will most definitely be an early night to bed for me! Two reasons why: we’ve had a bumper week of events and meetings, plus today I took part in my first race of 2022, and it went pretty well. As I mentioned last week, we are really focused on raising our first round of… Continue reading Just missing out on a top 10 finish…

Happy New Year: 2022, we’re ready for you

Welcome, 2022! After a short hiatus of blog writing for various reasons; the C-word being the main factor… I am back and looking forward to my second full year of writing this blog. Christmas, which now seems like an age ago already, was lovely although I have been recovering from a bout of Covid-19. In… Continue reading Happy New Year: 2022, we’re ready for you

Moving house again?! And pretending I’m Steve Jobs…

Where has this week gone?! Each week just keeps flying by and this one is no exception. I’ve had a lovely long weekend over these past few days, and as much as I love working on Luna, it was fun to have Friday off and be a tourist in this city. Tuesday was a big… Continue reading Moving house again?! And pretending I’m Steve Jobs…

“And what do you do…?” “Me, I’m the Secretary of State for Education”….oh, great!

Doncaster 10km Well what a week it has been. I’m writing this again from Yorkshire (I do seem to spend a lot of weekends up in Yorkshire for one reason or another) as this weekend I found myself back racing a 10km! I haven’t run a 10km (race) in a few years. I always thought… Continue reading “And what do you do…?” “Me, I’m the Secretary of State for Education”….oh, great!

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards”: Reflections on a year that changed my life

This week I moved out of my flat in Oxford for two weeks back at home in Yorkshire. I had an annoying trip to London this week searching for a flat, but alas, unsuccessful. For this weeks blog, I am sharing the final post I wrote for the Business School website. I wrote blog posts… Continue reading “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards”: Reflections on a year that changed my life

After the hardest 50 weeks of my life, we head into the final one…

It’s party time I actually can’t believe this has been week 50 of 51 and tomorrow heralds the beginning of Capstone week, our final week as Oxford students. It has been another busy one; starting the week in Yorkshire, visiting London twice and kicking off the final parties and nights out. On Tuesday, Jas and… Continue reading After the hardest 50 weeks of my life, we head into the final one…
