If you followed the trials and tribulations of our 2017 challenge to run 12 half marathons in 12 months – here is a little update……………… We have had a bit of a rest from the half marathons – January and February off – and I have to confess to rather missing them. So tomorrow (weather permitting – it promises to be freezing) we return to the starting pen – this time for the Hastings Half Marathon (hard and hilly).
But last night was Heathfield Road Runners AGM and awards night. And Gill and I are now living proof that running awards are not all about youth (well not in my case anyway) or speed. I think it is fair to say that we were both absolutely delighted to share the club’s award for Female Performance of the year.
We didn’t run the half marathons for an award – we ran them for fun (yes Gill we did!!) – but the award was the icing on the cake. And the reason? Because it confirmed for me what I have always believed about running and runners. That anyone can do it. And the running community is just the best – you are welcomed and your achievements celebrated whoever you are and however you run…………….
So if there is anyone out there still on the couch…………………
Hastings half marathon – bring it on!!
