My Personal Challenge – 20 miles!

On Sunday 18th March, I completed my longest running challenge so far, the Gloucester 20! A 20 mile race around the countryside of Gloucestershire. The race felt pretty long and at times very challenging. I ran the majority of the race with a great group of Almost Athletes and dear friend, Emma.

I feel great for achieving the 20 mile landmark. At Christmas, the furthest I had run was 2 half marathons, one when I was 18 and one last year, the Tewkesbury. Each week since Christmas I have been building the miles and am so happy to have reached the 20 – only 6 and a bit to go to complete the marathon.

My next challenge is to complete the Brighton Marathon on April 15th 2012! This now seems achievable, but, I also know that it is going to hurt! To drive me forward is that this marathon is all for the great cause of raising money for Winston’s Wish, the Child Bereavement Charity. If you would like to donate please click below :
