So from the title yes you guessed, I did it. I ran a Half Marathon.
Slept okay last night then got up put out my weetabix and had a coffee.
I new the first 8k of the route as I had ran it on my 10 mile run . It may be classed as a cycle path but boy its hilly.
I had my new belt with space for my phone and jelly babies and 2 small water bottles.
It rained the whole time and it was windy but I didn't care and being from Scotland I'm kind of used to it.
I had my watch set for half way so I new when to turn around to go back.
My legs got a bit tired near the end but I kept pushing on and then I was finished . I had the biggest smile on my cool down walk and probably looked a bit mad walking into my street smiling like a Cheshire cat.
As it was raining there wasn't many people out today a few dog walkers and cyclists.
A few photo stops along the way the cows and their calves and the tiniest snails I've ever seen where dotted along the path the entire route.
So I'm home now and I'm proud of myself and apart from my husband you all are the first to know I did it.
I want to say thanks for all of your posts , I've been reading about other peoples HM distance on here and it really helped push me along and thanks for all the pinned posts about how to get to where I am today.
Nearly forgot , today would have been the Monklands half marathon and for obvious reasons it was cancelled but if you did the run and sent them proof via email they will send out the medal in the post 👍
