|Sarah - Soaked but happy after our first training run at Tealby|
I am hoping that this is a temporary set-back and that if she rests a while, listens to her foot and trains carefully she'll soon be back enjoying running again and we will pick up our adventure from where we left off. So in the spirit of being positive and expecting the best possible outcome, let's get this journey started with a bit of an insight into how Sarah got into this crazy idea.
What’s your age and how long have you been running?
I'm 44 and I ran my first mile in December 2011 having been out for a walk, stopped at the pub for a drink and *himself asked me if I fancied seeing if I could run the mile home. I joined CRC in January 2012 and haven't looked back.
* this is how Sarah sometimes refers to her fella, (and our co-team leader) Mike Wells
What is the longest distance you have run so far?
The furthest I've run is (26.2 miles) Chester marathon 2014. Despite saying I would never do a marathon, it has to have been one of my best running experiences ever.
What’s your favourite race distance?
I've established that I'm not built for speed so would have to say that my preferred distance is a half marathon - for that satisfying sense of achievement but at a nice steady rhythm that doesn't feel as though you've almost killed yourself
