Loughborough Half Marathon
I’m very pleased to have crossed the line in 2hrs 7mins in the first of six half-marathons I’m running in support of CRY and five other incredible charities.
I chose CRY after hearing about a colleague, Dave Hughes, whose son sadly passed away in 2015 from an undetected heart condition. His son, Dan, was of similar age to the best friend I lost to Cystic Fibrosis in 2003, so it really hit home with me!
I’ve since learned about the work CRY does and the endless fundraising that Dave and his family do to provide vital screenings for young people. Running 78.6miles is worth every step in supporting of such a great cause!
Great Northern Run
I completed my second run yesterday (Great Northern Run); very hot and a tough run, finished in 2h 9m. Given the conditions a time I’m very pleased with!
Liverpool Rock n Roll Half Marathon
I completed the Liverpool Rock n Roll half in a PB of 2h 4m. Originally from Liverpool, this was the run I was really looking forward to, and it didn’t disappoint; great atmosphere, great support and great weather (if a little hot!).
Half way through…!
Humber Bridge Half Marathon
I completed the run in 2h 1m 33s…a new personal best!
I have also registered to run in the Chester Marathon in October and will be extending my fundraising page to include this event!
North Wales Half Marathon
I completed an extremely hilly and even more painful North Wales Half on Saturday. I got cramp in all my leg muscles at mile 6 and in some places literally dragged myself over the finish line!
Hoping for a much flatter outing in August!
Canterbury Half Marathon
I completed my sixth run (round the Kent countryside) in 2h 9m. That’s the six-in-six done
