Notes & Comments

  • Top of the world
Reading Half - my first ever half marathon! - and I managed to get round in one piece. OK, I'm not fast (2h 43m) but I'm just amazed to have got round at all. I was all set to drop out at mile 2 when I just felt overwhelmed by the task - but kept on going and now feel great. Ran with my dad, who is now 60, he could actually have got round in 2 hrs but he stayed with me the whole way with lots of encouragement (along the lines of 'never mind eating jelly babies, just get running'!) Legs seizing up now though - am supposed to take kids to legoland tomorrow - assuming I can still walk....
