Running: New York Marathon

7798ABF8-A575-4DD7-AD47-5B82A283B3F7Still trying to get my head around this!

I will be running in New York City in November this year to take part in the marathon. Some how I managed to get picked in the draw for the 2018 run! This is the second time I had put my name down to do it, even crazier that I got an email earlier this week because my payment card wasn’t right. Luckily I quickly changed that and will be running an international race!

That’s right something totally crazy happened and I somehow got into the London Marathon again via the ballot! After completing my first marathon in 2016 which was London I will be back again for 2018.

Might have been a little bit better if I hadn’t signed up for Manchester a couple of weeks before the ballot results, I therefore have two marathons within 3 weeks! So you are going to see a lot of blog posts about training!

Things I’ve done since the London Marathon!

Since the truly incredible experience of completing my first ever Marathon I have since done quite a lot of run related things!

  • New Running Trainers!

The first was to buy some new running trainers, as mine had clocked up a lovely 311 miles (just in running, not counting the many walking miles on cool downs home). So I had been looking at the Adidas Boost collection and instead of forking out £130 and not being sure, I decided to head to an Adidas outlet and lucky enough they had some in and I got a pair at a bargain price of £35 which I thought was perfect to test out and then look to get some more in the future!

My First Marathon – London 2016

logo-9ba41baa1cd2_zps6dpcfctt

On Sunday I managed to complete my first ever Marathon I have done the Great North Run five times but this was double the distance and therefore double the test. My panic and nerves kicked in a full week before the race and I was being physically sick. Not ideal preparation for running 26.2 miles when you cannot eat anything. As the week went on I managed to eat more everyday, which was a massive plus of course!
