Earlier this month, I posted about Mo Farah’s pledge to move from Metres to Miles in 2014, and how I was considering running my first marathon, too.
Well I’ve only gone and done it. I’ve signed up for The Loch Ness Marathon this September! Eeek!
I thought: this is the year. It’s the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It’s the Year of Homecoming across Scotland. Mo’s stepping up the distance. And I signed up!
There was something extra special about signing up for this race: it’s the first race I’ve signed up for in my married name- since I’ll be an ‘auld married wummin’ by then! That was exciting, too!
Be prepared to be very bored with my marathon chat, folks! 😉
Evening all: I’m just dropping by with a quick question to all of my super-knowledgeable friends, during my short visit home from Portavadie and before yet another busy weekend. We have our family Secret Santa day tomorrow!
I need a holiday!
Those of you who are fans will have seen that, for Mo Farah, 2014 is about moving from metres to miles.
In 2014, Mo will run a marathon.
Now, the question I have is: can I do the same?
I’ve been eyeing up The Loch Ness Marathon for some time, following some twitter encouragement from @pt_steveb . I must admit, I am seriously tempted. But, can this serial short-distance jogger of 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathons step up and do the big one?
