Triple threat!

It was a busy day for triple threat Emma. Running the 1500m wasn’t enough – she competed in the 5000m and the 4x400m relay to top off a brilliant day of racing! With a PB and 2nd place over the 1500m, unfortunately the 5000m didn’t go as smoothly. On pace for a PB, the officials miscounted the laps which meant it turned out to be a 4.7km race – it just means we’ll have to wait another few weeks to see Emma smash her 5000m best!

Monday Motivation from Rachel B

REPOST FROM @thelongrunback_rachel

12 miles in 1:59:19 today.

Well I was so inspired by the #londonmarathon (just like ever year!) that I just had to share this. The first #halfmarathon I did was back in 2015, I don’t have any pictures from it, and finished in 1:58:27 – my most recent was earlier this year with a finishing time of 1:42:50.

It took 3 years of learning, heartbreaking, frustration, blisters, poorly tummies and long miles, but I knocked 16 minutes off my time. If anyone watching the marathon today has been inspired and wants to start running, but thinks they aren’t good enough, ignore the doubtful thoughts and just run! The reward you get from this sport is incredible, and you will learn so much about yourself on the way.

Well done runners from this years marathon! You’re all superstars for running, especially in this heat.
