It’s in the bag! 3 months and 5 days before my 50th I have completed my first (& to be honest, probably my last) marathon – Yay!
Sunday 26th April 2015, a wet and cold morning in London; perfect for the challenge ahead; Virgin Money London Marathon – 35th Anniversary.
Along with 38k+ other goal setters, I had one vision in mind – simply to cross the finishing line.
The crowd were amazing, cheering energy into depleted muscles; it’s in those moments you realise the true power of people, the energy they give off.
Finally, I turned the corner into the mall, finishing line in view, and realised the hard work was over; awesome feeling.
And now I have a greater sense of the amazing fitness level elite athletes have to run marathons in less than 2.5 hours – respect!
As for me, one week off before I hit the running trail again.
Next fitness challenge… Insanity! It’ll be in the bag too!
Keep Giving, Keep Receiving!
