The past five months have been quite a journey for me.
I started running back in June this year and it has been full of many highs.
My first 10k run was in July at the London Olympic 2012, Queen Elizabeth park.
Then i completed my first ever half Marathon in October at The Great Birmingham Run, with a London Olympic torch.
And then finishing off with the West London 10k run in November.
Its not been easy at times. especially when i go for a training run in the cold, dark, wet mornings. But it has been worth it.
I have had many people help and advise me and many say i have a lot to share.
Hence i have started My Run Guru.
Find us on Facebook and Twitter , come join us and let’s see where this journey will take us all.
Olympic Torch Great Birmingham Run
After the elation of having completed my first ever marathon, i was pleasantly surprised to be included in a follow up article to the half marathon in the Bromsgrove Standard.
The article was featuring the castes man and woman in the circulation area for the newspaper, which includes my home of Rubery.
Its a great picture they have used and more positive news for Hibbs Lupus Trust, of which you can still sponsor via this link.
Some of the feedback now is along the lines of “you must be a natural long distance runner”, which is very flattering.
For those who have followed my training journey since June this year, will know that it has been a lot of hard work, training and commitment.
If all those means i’m a natural, then many of us can be natural long distance runners too.
We just need to make a decision and stick to the commitment.
