I’m a runner in my mid-thirties. I’ve been running off and on for about 15 years but it’s only in the last few years that I’ve begun to take part in races. My first race was the Great North Run in 2004. Until the beginning of 2010 I’d run about 7 races in total. In 2010 I’ve managed a whopping 8 races! As it comes to 2011 I hope to continue taking part in races and improving my times.
My PB’s are:
5k – 26:10 Bushy Parkrun 10/07/2010
10k – 53:50 Wimbledon 10k 19/10/2008
Half-marathon – 2:12:00 Robin Hood Half 16/09/2007
Marathon – 4:58:37 Edinburgh 31/05/2009
Some of these are a long time ago. In the last year I’ve done mainly 5 and 10ks and have come close to getting a new 10k PB but narrowly missed out. Looking at these it looks like I do a rate of one per year. It would be nice to beat that though.
Apart from running I love cooking and also have a food blog, Searching for Spice.
