My first half marathon- DONE!!

Oh my goodness. Last Easter my super-running friend convinced me to have a go at a half marathon... the London Landmarks Half Marathon. I was a total running novice! So, I C25K’ed... and kept going. I was with two friends today, we were all running for Breast Cancer Care, we’ve raised over £2k between us Anyhoo, I’ve just done it. The first ever London Landmarks Half Marathon... my first ever half marathon, in 2:39:03. I’ve never even done a park run! It was brilliant. So much support all the way round, things to see, I loved every second of it. So proud of myself too! @iannodatruffe - you helped me get there!!

If you can do it..........who knows..............

You put in the groundwork and reap the rewards of a run you will remember, long after the training slogs are forgotten.

You are an inspiration to all.
