One Step At A Time

Running is taking 'One Step At A Time' and that's all there is to it.

Some take their steps a little faster than others, but we all get there in the end.

My stats this year are:

5km - 31 mins 17 secs

10km - 1 hour 6 mins 48 secs

Half Marathon - 2 hours 28 mins 5 secs

So my steps are a little on the slow side.

This year I am concentrating on Half Marathons and finishing with the Derby 10 mile in November.

I am determined to get closer to my Half marathon PB of 2 hours 21 minutes.  

Follow my journey with it's many downs, and hopefully some highs as I train to chase my dream.

I have run this race twice before.  In 2017 on a very cold, rainy March.  All I can remember is Mum meeting me as I finished and apologising for throwing away the coffee she had purchased, because her hands were shaking so much from the cold she had spi...

I started running in 2013.  My first Parkruns were over 50 minutes, my first 10km over 1 1/2 hours and a Half Marathon just under 3 1/2 hours.  I have got faster, but I am still near the back of the field in races and would love a sub hour 10km, just on...
