We did it!!!!!!

At 12miles

Well we did it. We compleated the first challenge The Birmingham Half Marathon 2009 in 2hrs 38minutes. That’s a whole 2minutes ahead of our expected time.

We took a small support crew of one sister, one niece and one boyfriend. You can see their tweets from the day at the @djmikepeters twitter feed.

The race took a while to get going so we didn’t cross the start line until around 10.20am. It then took a bit of time for us to pick up the pace as there were a lot of runners all crammed in quite narrow streets. 5 to 10K was the easiest bit of the race through Cannon Hill Park. Maybe that’s because we were running with some leprechauns.

As we passed the people on the first mile someone shouted “Come on Claire, come on Amy” I looked at the girl who said it and thought “I don’t know you.” Then I realised I had my name in big capital letters on the front of my vest. Thank God we had done that because people chearing our names really kept us going. Thank you to anyone who stood outside and cheered us as we ran passed you were all so nice. People even gave us jelly babies to help us going.

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who sponsored us you are very lovely people. Keep an eye on the totaliser to find out how much we have raised. Hopefully soon we will be able to Buy A Man A Boat. Right, I’m tired now and have very sore feet so night night X

Run Forest Run!

Amy and I are training for this year’s Birmingham Half Marathon to raise money for BAMAB. The race is on Sunday 11th October which isn’t long away so we got ourselves into gear and on Saturday went for our first proper training run around Liverpool’s Sefton Park. We ran for an hour and I even got chased by a dog, not a good start and I was exhausted. Although I have ran a marathon before it was well over a year ago for a bet and I promised myself I would never do anything like it EVER again…. anyway, just for BAMAB here I am running again and this time it is JUST OVER 13 miles. This time I’m running with Amy (who is a proper gym bunny ) so I am going to have to put some work in if I want to get fit in time and not embarrass myself. My treadmill is going to be coming out of my mum and dads garage at the weekend where it has been since I trained for the marathon. Hopefully, that should help. Will keep you all posted with how we are getting on. In the mean time please support us and sponsor whatever you can by pressing the Donate button.

Thanks

Claire

The trainers I hope will take me the 13.1miles
