It feels like such a long time ago that I wrote my post all about the reasons that I signed up to run a half marathon. Finally, 3 months later the big day itself is looming and in the run up to the race I have come to realise a few things.

I think the main thing that has become apparent to me is that although I first signed up with the predominant intention of completing the distance, there is so much more to training for a race than the race itself. Yes, that will be a great way to mark the culmination of my training and to show how I’ve improved as a runner but it is what has happened in the lead up to the race and also what will happen afterwards that is important; there are so many wider implications.
