Cardiff Half Marathon, Sunday 2nd October 2016. Print

Vicki Bone writes >

Katie and I both took part in the Cardiff Half Marathon on 2nd October though we didn't manage to see each other. Cardiff is one of my favourite cities and this was another half marathon I hadn't managed to run under 2 hours. Luckily the torrential rain the day before eased off and it turned out sunny for us. The start pens were very well-organised and had a great atmosphere. It was nice to hear people singing the Welsh National anthem even though I couldn't join in. It's definitely a PB potential course as the few hills there were didn't seem as bad as those on other half marathons I've done. The route has changed too so it finishes in Cathay's park not far from the start line rather than the Bay. It's a lovely scenic run especially by the Bay. I  enjoyed the run and managed to do it in under 2 hours as I wanted. The goody bag was great and we were treated to apples, bananas, water, lucozade and chocolates. The t-shirt and medal were nice too. I chose to do it as an alternative to the Birmingham half and I much preferred Cardiff. I would recommend it.

Great North Run, Sunday 11th September 2016 Print

Vicki Bone writes >

 I recently took part in the Great North Run in September after getting a ballot place. I've run this course a few times being an ex-local but had never managed to do it in under 2 hours. The whole atmosphere of the event is amazing and I had no doubts as to why it's the most popular half to do. There were a lot of people taking part but it's very well-organised and the entertainment was great. It was a warm day (17 degrees is a heatwave for South Shields) but there was plenty of water given out and showers along the route. There were even plastic cups of Newcastle Brown ale being handed out at 10 miles but I decided against it. It's always well supported by the local crowds and the coast is a very welcome sight at 12 miles. I was worried my hamstring might give up at any time but luckily it didn't and I got round in 1.37.16 which I was very pleased with. I'd definitely recommend it if you're lucky enough to get the ballot place.
