Boddington Marathon

Had a great weekend in Gloucester, where we ran the Boddington Marathon on the 19th of June.
Unusually I ran the first couple of laps with Gil (we were running 12 laps in total) then met Collette O’ Hagan from Dublin. We jog/walked together and crossed the line in 5-26-53, my best Marathon time since Hastings in December 2008. I was well pleased with that! Still need to ‘up’ the training though. Would b e nice to get closer to 5 hours again. Maybe next year, who knows.

Dartmoor mini holiday

Had a great few days with Gil in Devon where he ran his 100th Ultra at the Dartmoor Discovery race, one of his favourites. Met lots of chums there and celebrated with a cake afterwards.
Spent a couple of days with Aunty Vera then home. It was nice to be able to take Poppy with us.

Must start doing some sensible training now as I have entered the 100km race in Perth in September.
