Well I have now completed the Great North Run 2012 !! and it was indeed a great run. I worked hard enjoying the bands the crowds and even the jelly babies and came over the line in:
1hr 33 mins & 54 seconds – a half marathon PB
Would I run again? well never say never, it was s long way to travel but worth the miles (I had Doug to drive me there) the atmosphere is electrical and I seem to thrive off it. If I do run it again I have a goal to move from the Orange pen I was in to the Stripey fast club runners pen !!
Happy running Happy Runners – oh and if anyone sees my coach can you tell him I need to speak to him, THANK YOU x
