30-year-old Welsh warbler Katherine Jenkins took part in the Admiral Swansea Bay race 10k run over the weekend. The forces favourite looked fit and healthy in orange vest and jogging bottoms as she put foot to floor in the gruelling race. The opera wonder smiled throughout and even found time to pose for beloved Twitter in a series of photos. It was super exciting to follow, real edge of your seat stuff. One highlight was tweeted about 20 hours ago via Echofon when she said “Water sto at 5k 34 min.” Then shortly after came the nail biting announcement that she was “Nearly there.”

We jest, but we’re actually impressed, she ran a long way and earned thousands for charity. All we did at the weekend was move from the computer to the sofa and back again. In fact, it what can be considered the polar opposite of running a 10k for charity, we went to the café near our flat, ordered the mega breakfast, settled down with the paper and then uttered the immortal phrase, “actually, can we get that to take away?” Yes, we ‘went there’ we ordered a greasy fry-up and took it home and plated it up, just like we were bloody kings or something. We didn’t rise anything for charity, but we still had a blast. Three cheers for Katherine though, hip hip…
