  1. Hi, wow, what inspirational race stories. A lot of the place names are v near me too, we could be neighbours! I need a kick up the bum to get running, u put me to shame! xxx

  2. So amazing to see all of your achievements like this on one page; it does 2 things for me, makes me realise that we need to remember how far we have come and what we have accomplished along the way … each race in itself a journey. Well done on all x

    1. I have a tendancy to forget these things too, so it is good to look back like you say. Although I am not good at updating these pages!

    1. Thanks! I love keeping a record of all the races I have completed- plus of course ones to look forward to!
