Quantcast

the howies store, london

a little goes a looooong way

we just had a lovely lady in the shop, all the way from australia.
she's here on business, but saw our little shop on a travel show down under, and as she was here decided to come in for a look.
it really is a small world...

what's a birthday without cake?

to help us celebrate, we have cakes! mark's got a vegan passion cake, mine's the filthy pavlova and naida just wanted a coffee (i'm worried about her!!). t
here will be more tomorrow for those who missed out today. it's only fair!

1 today!

one year ago today the carnaby street shop first opened its doors, with very little stock and even less idea of how it would all turn out.
thankfully, after alot of ups and downs, good ideas and not so good ideas, we are still here to celebrate our first birthday!!!
a big thanks to all our customers with their helpful criticisms and compliments, as the face of howies we are slowly learning how to make this all work and survive out here in the big wide world!

heres to reaching toddlerhood!

(all cakes will be greatfully received and disposed of accordingly)

Sore knees

Tom from the store here.
Yesterdays practice marathon run was much harder then my 16 mile one 2 weeks ago. I decided to go for 3 hours, hoping to get as close to 20 miles as possible. I got to 20 miles in 2hrs 58mins. I was happy, but my post run feeling wasn't. I went to my local cafe and although tired and thirsty I decided to go with a chips and sausage lunch with choclate cake. The food of athletes I like to think, but not the smartest post- run pick- me- up. I felt a bit sick, and today the knees feel like they have aged 200 years. Hopefully on the day I'll feel better, and the aim is now for under 4 hours.

Feel good run

Tom from the store here.
I love to ride my bike, but recently had been thinking about running more. I never really run, only on a machine in the gym. My friend told me 3 weeks ago he was running the Dublin marathon at the end of October so I went home and booked my place too. Ive been running a few times a week now and on thursday managed 16 miles in under two and a half hours. With alot of my tough bike rides I've finished feeling exhausted, but when I got to mile 16 I felt great. I have a pedometer and after the run Lance Armstrongs voice came on and congratulated me on my best run. I walked home from the park with a huge grin on my face, much to the confusion of many a driver. Next thursday I'm aiming for 19 miles. =)

our day out!

working hard on our recent trip to cardigan to visit howies HQ!
