I have wanted to run the Great North Run for as long as I can remember, I watch it on the tv every year and fill up at the sight of those crowds of runners over the Tyne bridge. Last September, since doing c25k, the urge was stronger than ever and the idea played round in my mind and so a couple of weeks ago I entered the ballot.
I didn't dare hope I'd get in but on Thurs I got an email which read "Congratulations...!!" I couldn't speak for a moment and have been spaced out ever since. Me? Running a half marathon on 15th September?
I'm over the moon of course but more than a little daunted, I'm not quite at the 10k mark so there's much work to be done. Any support you wonderful c25krs can offer at all would be very much appreciated - right now I need someone to tell me I can do it.
