Oops, again I have not written in a while… four months, I think. That’s too long. Hello, hello and hello again.
For those of you who are interested – I completed the half-marathon as I planned on Sunday April 2nd, 3 hours and 15 minutes. It was gruelling. My hands swelled so much by the end, that I couldn’t remove my rings. I got sunburnt and could barely walk afterwards. But, I loved it. The anticipation at the start line, talking to people we passed and who passed us, all the encouragement received as we ran past people or with them. We even had a stranger pull over and stop us, so that they could donate some money to the charity.
It was very much worth it, and I would definitely do it all again. Maybe with a little more training though.
Now my next challenge is to complete the Couch to 5K programme… and to lose a little weight.
