I kicked off January with an incredible trip to France snowboarding in the three valleys. It was sunny, good snow and with 7 wonderful friends.
February I was deep into my marathon training getting in 18-20 mile long runs at the weekend but it was the early morning snow runs that were awful, amazing and remind you why put on your trainers and venture into the cold
March was the month before the marathon so many more miles coupled with hangovers, sugar addiction and birthday celebrations. Runs can sometimes merge into one but I still remember this beautiful morning run in Finsbury park, it felt like spring was on its way.
April was SUCH a busy month it is almost impossible to pick one photo that represents the highlights, Paris the Lightshow and Rainbows, however it can only be this team shot post marathon.
May was a month of trains and family. I spent time up north for work but also helped my family out with business which means lots of cross country running and hanging out with these pair.
June was the best, busiest month. A beautiful hot weekend in the New Forest, running, cycling and hanging out on British beaches could only be topped by a two week trip to Spain staying in the mountains, Fontcalda, seeing Valencia, partying at Sonar and hanging out like a local in Barcelonetta. Love.
HOT July, wow that was a nice surprise. I spent a lot of time in Manchester working on a new exhibition, cycling across London, sitting in parks Latitude, Loveboxand 4th July.
August again it was warm, we had bank holiday and I interviewed Martin Parr! The picture is in Margate where we were filming for the latest exhibition film for Only in England, part of a three day tour to Broadstairs, Bristol and Hebden Bridge. CARNIVAL and I finally saw the Crystal Palace dinosaurs. YES
September it was still warm and I cycled to Peckham a lot (I love cycling over Tower Bridge) I ice skated, roller skated and Only in England launched. AND I went back to Margate, made a Mondrian cake and got my London Marathon spot. Sheesh
October was filming and prepping for the launch of Collider, misty morning runs and quality friend time. The calmer before the inevitable storm
November was pretty blue skies, golden leaves to run through, the fifth thanksgiving and parties in the depths of the docklands. There were fireworks and dreamy Hampstead walks and cookbook photo shoots and cookathons.
December I learnt to KNIT! Partied with old friends in new places. Ran in the mud, a lot, went to Copenhagen and had a wonderful new year with some of my favourite people.
Lets go 2014.
