So...5 months ago I posted on here that I had entered the ballot for the London Marathon but that I won't get in. I've only gone and got a place. I am elated and terrified at the same time. I realise I've been extremely lucky to get in on the 1st attempt and I am going to make the most of it.
On Sunday hubby and I ran the Cardiff Half which was a fantastic experience. The crowd support was brilliant and the other runners so much fun. As as a slowey I often end up running the final bits alone or with just a few people but we were in crowds all the way. I came in at 2:46:05, a PB by 9 minutes and most importantly I ran the vast majority of it, wheareas big chunks of Oxford 2 years ago were walked. So..touch wood by next April I will have gone from C25K to a full marathon. Something I would never have contemplated!
