Libby Clegg: Blogging post Games
Here you can catch up with ESPC sponsored athlete, Libby Clegg, in her latest blog post for ESPC News.
Thank you so much for all of your support during the run up to and during the Commonwealth Games. Thanks to everyone on my Team Libby Facebook page who have been messaging me on there too. I have had so many congratulations messages that my phone battery was almost dead within hours of finishing so that is just an indication of how much support I am getting.
Winning gold at the games was amazing and I don't think it has really sunk in yet. It's been a bit of a whirlwind since we crossed the finish line and I am a little bit tired as I spent most of the next few days after the race being pulled in and out of interviews which is very surreal.
I will be training for the European Championships straight away so I'll be back in touch soon with more updates.
I did a phone interview with Lisa at The ESPC just a few days after my big win with Mikail (my guide runner) so you can listen to an extract from that on ESPC's AudioBoo or click play below.
I am delighted to share with you all that we now have a winner of the recent 'Win with ESPC - how fast will Libby run' competition that ESPC ran with me. The prize was to win an item of my kit from the games and 12 month pass to Edinburgh Leisure.
Congratulations to Gloria from Loanhead for winning! Gloria was ecstatic to hear about the good news and we can't wait to get a photo of her with a piece of my kit (no dirty socks, promise!)
A wee while back my boyfriend Michael and I bought a house through ESPC. Now with thing moving so quickly with our careers, we have decided to rent it out.
Between training, we have been aiming to rent our flat out with ESPC Lettings. Michael has really been managing this while I've been training and racing and he had this to add about his experience:
"Myself and partner, Libby Clegg, recently used ESPC to rent out our property in August. From the moment of enquiring about becoming landlords to handing over the keys, ESPC have made the journey simple, affordable and stress free!
"The staff were excellent at helping us with the relevant paperwork and took care of all the certifications needed. The whole process was very quick, with tenants securing the deposit within days of our property being advertised.
We are very proud to have ESPC managing our home and would recommend them first and foremost." - Michael Maltman.
Come and meet me!
I will be at The ESPC Showroom in the first week of September (date to be confirmed) for a meet and greet. Please do watch out on ESPC Facebook and ESPC on Twitter to see when this will happen, I look forward to seeing you and having a good chat.
Otherwise I will be blogging soon to let you know how the European Championships went and more about what I've been doing during August.
