2017 – 9 months to forget, 3 months to remember plus the Xmas handicap

There has been many a time this year when I have thought about quitting running due to ongoing back problems & sciatica symptoms, however my determination to succeed & not be a quitter plus my love of going to that place when you think you can give no more but can kept me going. I think the turning point came in September when I saw my neuro surgeon who referred me for a nerve root block injection to ease the pain referral down my leg, oddly finding this out seemed to ease my pain maybe it was the relief that finally something was going to be done about it.

Yorkshire Marathon 2017

Well, here I am again..same marathon, another year! Having enjoyed running the Yorkshire marathon in 2016, I signed up again to run the 2017 one. However, this time the aim was to beat my previous time, especially because I was so close to a good for age time!

TheDoncaster 10k

It was about 4•C and the stiff breeze was from the north,which gave a sharp contrast to the bright sunshine and blue sky. Behind the start line eager runners waited for the count down and I turned around to look at them all , nervous, impatient, happy and relaxed, every emotion representative in the expressions on 2000 faces.

A Tale of 3 H’s – Haltemprice, Harrogate and Hardmoors

Way back in the early part of the year there was a lot of talk of runners entering the Hardmoors Goathland Marathon or Half Marathon.  ‘That sounds a bit different’ I thought, so entered the half thinking I would be able to get loads of training in (ho ho!).   Next, the Guy Fawkes Ten trip came up and it seemed a good idea to enter the race and therefore go on the trip. Even though I find it an incredibly hard ten miler, this is a great race with fantastic organisation whilst still retaining its low-key atmosphere.
