Chippenham Half Marathon 15.09.13

Postby Carrie » Sun Sep 15, 2013 7:46 am

I'll be running the Chippenham Half Marathon today in aid of the Jill Martin Fund. It is a last minute entry and the furthest that I'll ever have run! Just had my porridge to keep me fueled up. I've created a just giving page in case anyone is feeling generous :) Here is the link: http://www.justgiving.com/Caroline-Almeida with a picture of me in training!!
Thank you :D

Thanks! Amazingly I finished and did not feel too bad although my legs felt really heavy for the last mile. Time of 2 hours 13 mins 25 seconds. Today a little stiff but much less than I imagined!! I'll upload a pic of before and after - just need to remind myself how to upload photos :)
