Bucket list, London Marathon 2019
Never in my wildest dreams back in 2007 when I joined Spey Runners could I see myself running a marathon. But over the years with the support and encouragement from fellow members, I’ve progressed
from walk/run to 5k/10k/half marathon and then the next one up marathons.
Over the last 6 years on entering the ballot to London marathon and reciveing the reject pack, to this year being luckily enough to reciveing the club ballot place.They’ve given me the chance to fulfill one of my buckets list ticks,from all those years ago from watching London on the tv, even before I started running saying and wishing I could do that!!!Well this year 2019, I got the chance and I did it.. 4.33.52.All I can say is anyone that thinks about doing it go for it, everyone is so friendly and encouraging on the day not only your fellow club members and family but total strangers/fellow runners all there to do one thing prove to themselves that they can do this and reach that finish line.
Thank you Spey Runners
