When we entered a team from RAH into the 2022 Cambridge Half Marathon, I had not expected to be able to complete 13.1 m having never run before, let alone finishing it in 2 hours 4 minutes.
I caught the running bug and have not stopped since. A year on and I belong to a running club, train two/three times a week and push myself to do my best. I have taken part in numerous 5 km and 10 km races, 10 mile races and Half Marathons and still can’t really believe it.
One and half stone lighter, feeling fitter and getting faster, I have seen numerous personal bests. I ran the 2023 Cambridge Half and exceeded my expections with a time of 1 hour 34 minutes!!
It is never too late to try something new and always believe in yourself. Now to see what 2023 holds!
