This year the Great North Run celebrated it’s 25th anniversary. Unfortunately the death of 4 runners and some organisational difficulties, the celebration felt a little soured.
Now that the aches and pains that follow a 13.1 mile run are slowly starting to disappear, time to tell you all about the 25th Great North Run.
Although I spent much of April writing a tutorial for .net Magazine, I did enjoy a brief respite while I ran the Brighton Marathon. Yep, it’s been quite the month.
I’ve always wanted to run a marathon, but shorter races were beset by poor training. Since taken running more seriously, I’ve become lighter, leaner and possibly even a bit faster. If I’m ever to achieve my dream of running a marathon, then this is the year to do it. An Olympic year too.
In less than two months time, I will once again be donning my running shoes to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
