So this morning I thought about an opportunity that had arisen to take a Edinburgh full marathon place.
On my birthday this year when I turned 24 and had an OMG I’m going to be a quarter of a century next year moment I decided I wanted to run a full marathon before I was 25. I had been looking at Bournemouth in October. But the thought of long runs through the summer were putting me off entering.
Then this opportunity arose. Yesterday I ran 13.1 miles. So I’m halfway there. I did a bit of googling of marathon plans and realised it would be possible. So the decision was made. It was possible. And I’m going to do it. Bonkers. Insane. Crazy. But I’m going to run a marathon.
We can’t all run forever and whilst I can run I want to achieve a marathon. So here goes. Training for a full marathon begins the end of this week!
Wish me luck!
