Marathon Training – Update!
As part of our Brighton Marathon training, Linda (above) and I competed in the Steyning Stinger Half Marathon last Sunday, and although we started at different times, we both finished just over the 2 hour mark – which we were both so pleased with – in fact Linda beat me by 1 second and was the 7th Lady to finish.
We both feel our preparations are going well, we plan to increase our training runs up to 20 miles about three weeks before the big day (14th April 2013), then taper down to ensure we are ready for the marathon.
I personally would like to thank Linda, who has been very encouraging and supportive to me, and as you will see from my picture (right) – I’m not the most attractive runner you’ll ever see!!
I know everyone at Valerie Manor and St Barnabas House would like to thank you if you have already sponsored us, and if you would like to please visit our Just Giving page by clicking on the link, or text your donation to 70070 (see below).
