Went out to run 4x1 mile reps, 90 sec recoveries & I can home to an email from the county mens team captain, for distance running (obv.).
"KK (Craig), would you like to be the fourth runner on the county half-marathon team at the Nottingham 1/2 Marathon, all expenses paid, transport provided, and you can keep the vest!"
Now understand, I've only been exercising for 2 years, and only been running for about 1 year, yet this sort of thing is something I've dreamed about. Seriously! I've always wanted to be a high enough standard to make a 'cut' to represent a region, be it my Uni (go Staffs!) or my County (go Berks!).
Heres the bummer, I'm on holidy on the 15th September, same date as the 1/2. And I cant cancel. I presume I was picked due to my recently improving, yet still consistently good (I think) form. I hope to God that an oppurtunity like this arises again!
