Last year I celebrated my 50th birthday and decided to mark this momentous landmark by attempting to complete 5 marathons before my 51st. I managed to achieve this goal by completing
Barcelona - 08/03/10
Swiss Alpine Marathon Davos 31/07/10
Chicago Marathon 10/10/10
Toronto Marathon 17/10/10 (yes 1 week later!)
Florence Marathon 28/11/10
It was a great journey, hard work and occasionally emotional, and as I got to the end, I wished I'd written it all down.
This year we have decided to try something slightly more ambitious and I have decided to write it all down this time so that I don't miss any of it :-)
So far the year hasn't got off to a great start as I've been unwell and therefore unable to get out and run, but maybe just maybe I will manage a few miles this weekend so I decided to start this blog today.
My year of running starts with Barcelona Marathon on 06/03/11
