Just ran a PB today in the Belvoir half and am over the moon.
10% for achieving a PB and 90% for having a fellow club team mate run with me and push me round to get a PB. Hugging another man is not usually within my social boundries however, I felt compelled to do this at the finish line for his kindness and motivation. Last year he came 4th in the race and I know he was capable of achieving the same sort of position today. In the end we crossed the line in 49th & 50th position and in the same time.
Another team mate did exactly the same thing as well for another team mate today resulting in a 10 minute PB.
It has made me make a decision to do the same for a fellow runner (club mate or not).
I think the moral of this post is to look away from your own personal goals and now and again recognize another runners potential and see what you can do for them!
