Fairy Tale Series Part 2 of 4

I'm already half way there. I now have 2 of these beautiful medals. I'm telling you, you need these ones in your collection. Not only are these medals great, they are also a nice, comfortable 5K distance.

I found running through my first love of OCR (obstacle course racing.) Last summer I decided to focus more on my running times as I want to improve my finish times in the OCRs I have booked this year. What I didn't anticipate is that I would get the running bug! I have worked hard on my times and the distance that I can run. I've even signed up for my first ever half marathon – eek! My hard work and commitment is now paying off in the 5K has become my easy distance. I feel comfortable to run the distance and I know I will be home in half an hour, give or take a few minute. This time last year I would not have been able to say that.

I love receiving my medals for the challenges that I enter for. They have not lost their magic for me. Growing up, Beauty and the Beast was one of my favourite Disney films and so I'm loving this one. Not sure that I would describe myself as a Beauty but I really have found the Beast inside of me when it comes to running. Long may it last – certainly long enough to earn me the other 2 medals in this fabulous collection J

Whatever your journey and ability, remember you are only in competition with yourself. Workout what you want from your running and it will be yours with the time and dedication.
