3 More Half Marathons and only 3 days until first Marathon

The first 3 months of 2014 have involved a lot of running in training for my first Marathon, The Virgin London Marathon on 13th April. 425 miles to be precise from 1st January to date. That has included Half Marathon 27, 28 and 29.

19th January was the Brass Monkey Race in York, which was flat and fast, not quite a PB, but second quickest time ever and 3rd time under 2 hours, finishing 1:59:36. 16th March, I took place in a slightly hillier Northumberland Half Marathon, which as a marathon training run was taken fairly easy in a steady 2:03:54. Final half marathon (ish) took place 29th March around lake Coniston, an “undulating” 14 miles in a respectable 2:13:15 followed by a nice few drinks in the Lakes.

Sunday is the big one, first ever Marathon and one of the biggest races on the planet. Will post an update if and when I survive it. Nigel
