As I crossed the finish line today I not only completed the Stirling Half Marathon but I also ran my 500th mile!!!! I am absolutely delighted to report that in under 5 months, running 79 times at a total of 78 hours and 52 minutes I have completed my 500 mile challenge!!!! 🤩🤩🤩
Tomorrow I will run the Stirling half marathon and when I get over that finish line I will not only complete that race but also run my 500th mile!! #500milechallenge #HSEL500 #runningforfamilies #julieshomerun
So I’m now into my final 50 miles of my #500milechallenge! Please help me meet my fundraising target by donating any amount you can and help Home-Start East Lothian continue to help families when they need it most! Thank you 😍

Thanks you so much and Happy Easter to you all x
This weekend started with some Parkrun volunteering followed by the New Winton 10k yesterday and the Kilamathon today – which combined took me over the 400 mile mark!! Am delighted to be in the “home stretch” as they say!
Today saw the “graduation” of the first of my running groups! Am amazing group of kids from Sandersons Wynd Primary School who have ran a mile with me for the past 5 weeks – helping me meet my goal while enjoying some fresh air and exercise themselves!
Today we celebrated their achievements with cakes, certificates and of course some more buttons in the jar 😀
Happy Mother’s Day to all you fantastic mums out there 😍
This morning I ran the next of my official runs as part of the 500 mile challenge! I was due to run this with one of the amazing mums that I support – we signed up together and trained together – but sadly illness has hit and so she wasn’t able to make it – but I ran for her and for all the other amazing families I have had the privilege to meet over my years with Home-Start East Lothian – this whole challenge is about raising awareness and funds for Home-Start and the work we do every day to help families help themselves 🥰
So I will continue on my running journey – 351 miles and counting… but would ask if you could spare any amount we would hugely appreciate your support and every penny raised will go back into supporting families when they need it most!

This weekend my family and I were lucky enough to spend the weekend at Disneyland Paris…. however I wasn’t letting that delay my challenge so 15 “Disney” miles completed and were over the 300 mile mark! Not everyday you run past a Teepee – Now I wonder if I can find some Disney buttons for my jar….😆👍
Really enjoying completing some of my miles with the fab kids from Sandersons Wynd Primary School 😆🏃🏻♀️👍
