I watched The Great North Run on Sunday and it has inspired me to do it next year. I love running and have done the Swindon half marathon twice. Apparently, the Swindon half marathon is the second hardest in the country. It is bloody hard, each time I have done it, I have vowed never to do it again. The last time I ran it, I got roped in at work by one of the Directors who wanted to put in a corporate team. Everyone, knew I had done the London Marathon. Before, I had agreed to say yes my name went out on an email saying I was in the team. The London Marathon was easier than the Swindon half.
I love all the stories of why people are running it and of course that it is all for Charity. I find it compulsive viewing. I will rope in a few of my friends and we weill all run it for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. I hope I get a place now I am putting it out there! I am not sure if it is a ballot or not. I will keep on running until I find out.
