After a couple of weeks of excuses, weather, not the right gear etc, I finally went for it. Great, loved it and managed to complete it all without having to give up. I think I'm finally coming around to running as a pleasurable experience. Previous experiences in my 20's, 30's and 40's were never great. But then again, no computers or mobile phones to assist you, it was flat out running until my legs exploded! wrong, wrong, wrong. But I didn't know any difference then. Before the run I have read tons of blogs and postings on various websites and the main thing that stands out is "Take it slow, steady" (Hare and Tortoise spring to mind!) and it worked for me. I was so pleased to have completed it. So here's to run 2 later in the week!!!!
