NSPCC Milton Keynes Half Marathon

Posted: 18/07/2011 at 12:19

Really enjoyed this event...don't normally do a run in July (due to  the weather!) but entered mid-week and glad I did.  Ran in 2:09, taking 6 mins off my last half (Bedford in December).  Lovely run, great support/marshalling  (wonderful to have a band on route!).  Am now thinking of doing the MK Marathon next April!!

 I would have talked to you!  Shame you weren't at the Milton Keynes Half!  Congratulations on your Edinburgh Marathon Debut - if you're at the Great North look out for me - I'll be the one without the ipod/mp3 player!!!

Earlier this year I entered and ran the MK Half Marathon having not participated in any such group event for some time.  I was, however, extremely disappointed when trying to engage with others along the way only to find the majority 'plugged' into their music and unwilling to interact.  Whilst I understand the benefit of running to music (say on a treadmill) I was sorely disappointed at the lack of social connection which, to my mind, makes these events much more enjoyable.  In my line of work I see how lack of human interaction plays a part in mental health.  What a shame that some of us are willing to increase our physical wellbeing yet I believe could gain so much more if we only gave our mental wellbeing the same attention...
