Having run a grand total of 8 minutes (W1R1) in the last 20 years, I have just submitted my entry for the Tonbridge Half Marathon in October.
Rest assured, I am under no illusions on just how much work I have to do to get ready for this event but I think that actually having a confirmed entry will act as an extra incentive for me to push on with c25k and beyond.
My ultimate goal is to run the London or Brighton Marathon in 2016. If I can do that in under 4 and a half hours**, my employer and one of their competitors have each agreed to make a very sizeable contribution to cancer charities.
Being of Scottish origin wasting £20 on an entry (not to mention what I have 'invested' on shoes, clothing and gadgets in the last couple of weeks) would be complete anathema and would hurt even more than what I am going to subject my legs and lungs to over the next year and a bit.
** My legs turn to jelly just thinking about that target but I will give it 100%.
