So this race started out a little bit different because we decided to go out on Friday night for ADE – where I stupidly slipped on a wet floor and hit my head so hard I ended up with a minor concussion…
Despite this minor set-back I was still determined to make that sub-2 hour half marathon time mine! So we set off in high spirits, thinking that this race couldn’t be much worse than Copenhagen.
I’m not gonna lie, it was bloody hard! Some parts of the race were really narrow and that really messed up my pacing. But I tried my best to do negative slits to even out the slow parts.
The race finished in the olympic stadium and I just remember pushing ever single fibre in body, shouting at myself from the inside not to give up because I could do it if I really wanted to.
AND I DID!!! 1 hour and 57 minutes!!! Broke down and cried when I finished because it has taken me 4 years to achieve this. However, AT LAST I was able to prove to myself that I could do it and that really is the best feeling ever!
Next up… London Marathon!
