Apologies if you've seen my rambling blog on marathon support already.... I just wanted to share on here that I have been running now for 4 years and whilst I didn't think I would ever run for 30 minutes without stopping, I have just completed a challenge that I set myself last year- I did an extreme marathon in Exmoor. I was nearly last, I nearly quit a few times when it was really tough, and it took me nearly 8 hours- but I DID IT....
I cannot tell you how good it feels and I'm planning my next challenge now. I wanted to urge you to keep going if you are struggling or worried about being 'slow' , just focus on that finishing line whatever it may be and you will feel so great when you get there. My new mantra for this event was,
'Slow and steady always wins the race,'
And it really does!!!
Happy panthering everyone
