Grittleton 10km - 14/10/2018

Posted on: 15 Oct 2018

The night before this race I suggested a challenge to myself, to complete 12 half marathons in 12 months next year. The reasons I’ll touch upon in later blogs I hope. I have never completed a half marathon before. They scare me a bit, marathons sound scary!

Here is the first post, reflecting on the first race, on the way to the first half marathon! 1 hour and 26 seconds. Not too bad! The legs are saying different. They hurt. The thought of a half marathon seems FAR away right now - let along 12 of them! Help! Lots of things are hurting (even my shoulder somehow, weird). It felt really good to finish something, to get something done! Onto the next one....
