I sat down and set myself certain targets for rest of the year after east hull 20. One of these was a sub 80 half marathon so I decided to enter two. The first one being Humber half which I knew was a tough course and then this one which was labelled undulating. I was thinking the target would probably have to achieved at the latter and having missed out by seven seconds at Humber half I was proved right.
Back in 2015 I entered the GNR with a friend I wanted to do something for a local children’s hospice that would be completely out of the box for me. I had never ran before, I hated running. I avoided the treadmill in the gym, even as far back as school I remember getting a detention for detouring across school during a PE lesson which involved running the 1 mile loop around the school grounds.
