I was very dissapointed to receive another rejection for the Flora London Marathon. It is my ambition to run the marathon and particularly in my 50th year. I have been running on and off for the last 5 years, however this last year is the first that I have continued to run over the winter and what a difference it has made instead of having to break the 3 mile barrier in the Spring I have managed to improve my times. 2007 I ran the Lake Vernyw Half Marathon in 2:16. April this year I ran my first 10K in 60+ mins then was delighted to run 10K in 59mins in June. I completed the Birmingham Half - Marathon in 2;09.
I will be 50 in March and am much fitter now than I was hitting 40. I am still quite amazed at myself as I hated PE at school have never had an interest in sport and can now outrun my husband and teenage boys (over a distance though - not speed). What amazes me is that I am actually improving - running faster. If I am fortunate to win a place to be coached for the London Marathon I would hopefully reach my potential and know what I am capable of. I would certainly be committed. To run the London Marathon has been a dream for me since it first started when I never believed that I could actually run.
Thank you for consideration of my entry. Good luck to all.
That's great Adele. Now you just need to get it in the right thread.
Personally I was very tempted, but I've decided it fits with my personal plans, both training wise and with current work commitments, if I enter next year. Hope they do it next year...
