  1. 1 year ago today I ran my first half marathon

    March 17, 2014 by The Man

    1 year ago today I ran my first half marathon and I remember thinking on the way round that this is as close to hell as any man can get. But as soon as you cross the finish line your brain starts to forget the pain and concentrate on the joy of having accomplished your goal. I won’t lie, the three days after were a walking nightmare I felt so stiff but the pain was temporary and the rewards permanent so an Olympic triathlon and several half marathons later I can safely say it does get easier. I ran 22km yesterday and felt great all the way and recovered within the hour. I am loving my running and looking forward to joining the 26.2 mile club in June. Good luck and best wishes to all those who step one foot in front of the other at a speed greater than a walk #marathontraining #runner #running #halfmarathon #happyrunner

    22.8km or 14 miles in old money and that was ok. Seems odd a half marathon would be ok but it was the elevation that was bossed 355 meters or 1165 feet of climbs. Getting ready for #thebigfivemarathon #marathontraining #running #sunny #runbreeze #knackered #feelinggreat
