Marathon distance run number 10, my fifth of 2018 and final race of the year. I came into today wondering whether this was a race too far, feeling tired and carrying an injury, despite that I was still going to give it my best shot and try for a PB, anything under 3:35 will be a PB and a massive achievement given the injury. Here is my story of November 4th 2018.
Here we go again, flying out to New York for the NYC marathon. This blog is all about my travelling out, the expo and Saturday 5k. All of the preparations for Sundas marathon.
Marathon major number 4. This is the race I have spent the whole summer working towards. The A race for 2018, the race where I run well, the race I set a PB and run the time I know I am capable of..... that was the plan..
Here we go again, marathon distance run number 9 and back in the US for another major. This blog talks about my travelling out to Chicago the trip(s) to the expo and the Saturday International Chicago 5k run.
The second race of the day and the second time I have ran the Great Manchester 10k. Two years ago this was my very first race, I turned up with probably 5 training runs under my belt and never ran the distance before. This time around I was turning up having ran a half marathon PB in the morning over in Liverpool and over 2,500 miles of running in the legs.
Having ran the Rock n Roll Liverpool 5k and marathon in 2017 and really enjoying both races as well as scoring a PB in both, I wanted to return this year to have another go at the 5k and try to set a new half marathon PB.
This is my write up of my experience running the 2018 Virgin London Marathon for the British Heart Foundation. I was running in memory of my mum who sadly passed away following a heart failure and never got to see me complete this journey.
