Well done on completing the 12 in 12 Kerry -will you be doing a write up in an upcoming edition of RW?
How are you recovering since Sunday?
I'll be writing two more blog posts on the website, and then as for a write-up in the mag, we'll see. it would have to be something more than just a self-indulgent tale of my adventure, something where we can link it to some training advice for runners looking to run very long distances themselves. I'll be having a chat with Andy the Editor when I get back in the new year.
As for recovery, mmmm. Going slowly! Am walking a little less like John Wayne now and have spent three days eating everything I can get my hands on but slowing down now - lost 12lbs during the Tour and don't want to put it back on! Next three weeks are rest, swimming and yoga - and then I start MDS training from mid-jan.
Knees and shins are pretty shot - can't walk up or down stairs easily - but everything else is just fatigue so I think I'll be right in about 2-3 weeks. Still sleeping in compression tights though!
Hi Kerry.........only just came across this forum post.
I'd love to join you either Windsor to Richmond, or Richmond to The Mall. I ran the Athens Marathon a few weeks ago, so I'd hope to still be able to run the full marathon distance. I'm currently into the last few of the Asics/ RW Target 26.2 competition, so not sure whether it would be allowed to run all of it if I win, but as there's a 75% chance of losing, I'd love to come along if I lose.
Either way I'd happily sponsor. I worked a lot with HIV when doing my Master's Thesis in Kenya several years ago. Excellent cause.
So sorry for the late response. things were frantic in the lead up to the tour. Day 3 tomorrow...
If you're still interested we'd LOVE to have you join us. we'll need all the help we can get in the later stages! If you email my fellow runner Sarah O'Neill at /firstname.lastname@example.org]email@example.com she'll get back to you with all the details for those particular legs you mentioned. Hope you're well.
