Me as a runner
I’m a natural runner. By that I mean I have the ideal build and I really enjoy it. So in some ways, with the growing trend for people doing marathons and triathlons, it’s surprising it’s taken me until now to do one.
One of the reasons is the very fact that I enjoy running so much. The concept of a marathon and so many people’s stories seem to involve hard work, overriding the environment and the messages from your body, and pushing through something. When I go out running I love to give myself the freedom to walk part of the run (especially when it’s a particularly beautiful morning) or even stop and sit for a while. The places I’m lucky enough to train in provide plenty of temptation!
