Thank You

Number thirteen has been completed without mishap.

Cardiff was my first half-marathon back in 2013, so it was good to come back for a third time. Whilst my time was no record-breaker, the size of the event probably was. It gets bigger and bigger each year. This time, over seventeen thousand runners crossed the start-line - and I was right at the back. It took me nearly twenty minutes to cross the start-line. I must remember to join the queues for the loos a lot earlier!

Nonetheless, the atmosphere is what makes Cardiff such a great event. I don’t think I saw a section of the course that didn’t have supporters. Even one of the local residential homes wheeled out its residents and got them cheering us on. The support is what makes the event and I’d really recommend it as your “first” should you ever want to try running a race of this distance.

The best part, though, is that as a result of your sponsorship £187 has been raised to support the Campaign Against Living Miserably. By my calculations that’s enough money for them to take over twenty-five calls. Thank you so much.

My next half-marathon will be in Exeter at the beginning of next year.
