I've always wanted to run a marathon! Why? Most probably because I like pain and blisters! More likely because I want to challenge myself.
I used to run the 800m and 1500m at high school and really enjoyed it. As I got older my knees would hurt when I ran so I stopped.
In a fiction book I read a few months again, (I can't remember which one right now but I will find out), there was a character that had made a list of things to do before he was 50. I thought this was a good idea so started a list of my own. At the very top is : Run a marathon.
So I thought why not see if I really can. I went to a sports shop and got some advise on my knees and bought some good supports. I already had trainers from a failed renewed attempt at running 5 years ago. I already had some Nike cropped trousers and a Nike running top which I use for Body Combat. I downloaded a running programme to my phone from Android and was ready to begin :)
I hope you enjoy following with me as I train for and eventually run Copenhagen Marathon on May 22nd 2011!
