RAN MY FIRST HALF MARATHON TODAY!
Previous | 1 | Next

I've only been running for 9 months and have been struggling with an injury since November.

Well, I did it! Enjoyed every minute of it!! Didn't stop/walk once and made my way around in 02h08m

I know it's not super quick but c'mon......it's my first half and I couldn't run for a bus last April.

The knee is a bit achey now though!

Bring on the biggie in April now!!

Well done! I hate running and therefore admire you for going through with it.

Well done 8)

I wish I had taken up running when I was younger.

Cheers Guys...I took it up at the tender age of 41! I'm feeling 91 at the moment! :D

This. I can cycle a fair way but I've never been able to run more than a couple of miles in one go.

That some people actually enjoy it absolutely baffles me!

Well done, that's a long way :D

Now grab yourself a Duff and relax 8)

Congrats, I'm running my first half in a month and I'm aiming to run it in around 2 hours, god knows if I will manage to do it though.

Stolen Orions on fire off the hard shoulder of the M8. I watched neds litter in the dark near the Tennents shop. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

Ha ha good stuff, my home turf too; the weather was glorious on Sunday.

I do some running on the seafront but usually no more than 6 miles; been a bit lazy though and haven’t run for a few weeks (since the snow).

Give me a wave if you see a red Integra.

I'll look out for ya bud! And seriously....a BIG thanks for being my first (and only) sponsor!! ;)

Guys...if any of you could sponsor me I'd be eternally grateful. I'm no runner....indeed I could barely run for a bus 9 months ago but I got possessed by the crazy idea to run a marathon in memory of my wee sis who passed away back in 2011.

Cheers guys. :)

You're welcome; good luck!
