“I couldn`t possibly run a marathon…”

That`s what  I thought two years ago.Well, the odds were stacked against me. I was a non athletic woman in her late forties with three kids and a full time job.Time and talent were not on my side.

But maybe craziness was:I was daft enough to dream of it and to figure some way to make it happen.

I`m well on the road now. Clocked up twelve races in the last year. Miserable times but-since most of them are the first time I`ve run those distances, there`s lots of personal bests in there!
