The Running Man

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, but I’ve promised myself I’ll get back into the habit of running.

After the London Marathon last year, my running kinda tailed off. I suppose I’d ticked a number of boxes over the past few years – ran a sub-4 hour marathon (my first marathon!), ran the London Marathon, ran an Ultra (I have 2 under my belt so far...), and then the enthusiasm waned a little.

So to ensure I get back out there I have entered three races so far in 2018, and hope to enter many more:

  • ‘Run with the Wind’ Half Marathon – February
  • Selkirk Trail Marathon – May
  • Tiree Ultra Marathon – September

I’ve also set myself the challenge of running 2,000km this year, so still plenty of miles to go!
