My wonderful inspirational "big" sister ,who didn't start running herself till she was 47 and who has done 7 marathons (including the Snowdon in a force 8 gale last October!) asked me yesterday if I would join her in doing the Dingle half marathon in early Sept!
I looked it up when I got home, and it certainly is a fabulous place to do a half marathon IF you were thinking of doing one. Which I am not!
She was looking for a half marathon to enter as part of her build up to doing Snowdon again so the timing of the Dingle half marathon was good for her. If I wasnt already going to Croatia on a walking holiday the week after, I would definitely agree to go, but ONLY to cheer her on and for the "craic"! I have cheered her on at 3 London marathons and the Dublin marathon and thoroughly enjoyed basking in her reflected glory ,never for a minute thinking I would EVER consider running myself! How times change.
Bearing in mind I hadn't willingly run for 35 years till I started C25K last November I think doing a 10k this year will be stretching enough for me.
Maybe next year . . . .. !
