When i first started running about 4 years ago, it was a Baptism of Fire. You learn from your mistakes quickly, like wearing the right shoes rather than your day trainers, and when to eat / not to eat before a run etc. There is a 101 things you can do to improve your running, and we all have our individual ways. Being a marathon runner now, I am still making little corrections. Be it to wear certain shorts which will hold gells better, or to use sudocream for chafing.
My question to all you seasoned runners then, are you still finding that running is a learning process no matter how long you have been out there?
This will be my third time. Missed out last year since collided with another race i wanted to do. It is a great race. The hill at mile 6 can test your stamina, but just get through that and the rest is fine. The medal isnt brilliant, but the race itself is worth the effort.
