2014 was my first full 365 days of running. After running my first ‘race’ in December last year I was hooked!
2014 also saw Virtual Runs take off!
In all I collected 30 medals + 3 races that were T-shirt and no medal!
I ran 3 Half Marathons.
Valentines 10k Feb 2014 – No medal 😮 Got a personal best! Since then my 10k PB has gone to 61mins!
Silverstone Half Marathon 2014 My first ever half marathon, I ran it for the Lullaby Trust in memory of Matilda Mae.
Electric Run UK 2014 – No medal but a cute womens fit tee. A laugh but expensive for what it was and very busy! We had a giggle though 😀
Staines 10km My ‘home’ race and the first time I’d done it. PB’d and had a great time, was supposed to be taking it easy ahead of Edinburgh Marathon the week after but that sort of didn’t happen! Was lovely to run most of it with my best friend too!
Edinburgh Marathon – My first ever marathon! Boy I could say a lot about that. Mainly, it was HELL!
Turks Head 10k June 2014 – I remember this as insanely hot and tired legs from the marathon still!
Polesdon Lacey 10km June 2014 – One of my favourite races this year
Kempton Race for Life 2014 – The one when I realised how much weight I’d managed to lose in a year 😀
Elmbridge 10k – PB’d and had a sprint finish with the guy pictured, was fun!
Womens Running 10k Finsbury Park – Having not raced all of August I loved getting back to it in September! Had a great RMR meet up of girls too!
Bournemouth Half Marathon – The unexpected PB of the year!
Fuddy mudder Southampton My first mud/obstacle race!
Grand Union Canal Half – The awful half of the year. I think this one gets the worst race of the year award!
Kingston 10k – An unexpected 10k pb! This was my 1st ever 10k in 2013 and I returned in 2014 knowing I would beat my course PB but I didn’t expect to beat my 10k pb. I did 😀
Grim Challenge – No medal! Boo! A fun muddy race, but maybe one I wouldn’t revisit!
Judgement Day Team Challenge – My final race of the year with a group of awesome people! Loads of fun and has me firmly hooked on OCR and mud running!
