Just wanted to say thanks ..

Post by KeeperAntUK » Sun Oct 25, 2015 6:10 pm

So, you know how I go on about listening to the podcast whilst running?

Well, the reason for the training is that last year I, possibly foolishly and certainly over enthusiastically, agreed to run a 10 mile race with my wife!

Today I, along with over 20,000 others, completed the task! I managed to drag my bones around the course in a little over 2 and a 1/4 hours, not too bad for a fat old Fellah of 46 yrs !

The reason I'm saying thank you is because I wouldn't have made the run without the training I did; and I wouldn't have trained so well without my two favourite podcasts to keep me going ... You guys really helped a lot!

So to say thank you properly, I made some adjustments to my training top for the day. I've attached a couple of pics, hope you like it :D

Ps I know I don't look happy, I really was/am, I was just completely knackered :shock:

Good job! Nice to see a fellow runner! Half-marathon is my limit after my one and only marathon!

You'll need to keep up the training to stay ahead of the fleeing pack when the Great Old Ones make their next appearance...

I've started walking to re-acquire the fitness I sacrificed to work and other objectives - running has certainly earned my respect!

Cheers and congratulations on your accomplishment!

Full marathon is tough, mentally and physically but so worth it! Half is sound, a really good challenge but you've normally recovered by the next day.

Congratulations on the accomplishment, Ant, and thanks for flying the Podcast banners! That's quite inspiring.
