Training started as soon as I crossed the finish line of my last marathon (Stirling) in May 2017. My marathon times have recently been getting slower; therefore I was determined to take my training more seriously this time. After a year in Paris (see previous article), I was back training with the green and golds on a full time basis and feeling the benefits. My training routine included everything from spinning classes, parkrun, Tuesday and Thursday training nights to running the last leg of The Toby with the Harriers in August.
There was a fantastic turnout tonight at the Club Championships with a total of 63 juniors and seniors representing the Green and Golds! It was a great atmosphere and a wonderful sight to see all the green and gold vests flying down the streets of Wallsend.

So the world’s largest half marathon has been and gone again. In a funny kind of way it feels like Christmas. Loads of preparation, build up, excitement, nerves, expense (!) and then it’s all over in a flash. Some of us love it and embrace it others stay well clear.
