More about me
April 2010 I am now about to do my first marathon, to see if if is a bit to much or a new regular challenge. At 65 I am finding the increase in distance no problem to me but we will see in a few weeks at London 2010.
Done London and enjoyed its a long way but I did not feel at any time that I had taken on to much and so I am now doing Edinburgh, is it to be my new favourite distance? done Edinburgh now looking for my next one.since done Tenby and Dublin marathons in one year I am very pleased with that. I also won the runner of the year award in my running club
July 2011 I am about to do my first 50k race which is another step up, I really do enjoy the test of longer runs
