  5. My first half marathon – Reading or bust

    March 17, 2013 by The Man

    It was the end on July 2012, just before the start of the Olympics and i’d been looking through emails to delete a few and there was one from my friend Hannah about riding in Africa. Now having been to Africa a few times it’s a place I really like so off to Google I went to see what was available, I was originally planning to ride Africa.

    So I come across a site for running a marathon in South Africa called the Big 5 Marathon and that was it…. off to buy some trainers.

    Now my first run showed me that 30 years of smoking really wasn’t the best preparation for a marathon so lets try a half first. Managed to trick my mate Sukh into running with me and we were signed up for Reading Half Marathon on the 17th March 2013.
