Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

After sev­eral years of ca­sual run­ning I ran my first marathon in 2014. I then made two mis­takes: I let my­self think I’d ac­com­plished ‘ev­ery­thing’ in run­ning by fin­ish­ing a marathon and de­ceived my­self into think­ing I might ‘re­tire’. I bought a bike and dab­bled in triathlon but re­alised run­ning is about more than fin­ish­ing a cer­tain dis­tance – and that I’ll never do ‘ev­ery­thing’ it of­fers. I’m now em­brac­ing it like I haven’t in years, and am on tar­get for a half-marathon PB. Re­tir­ing is not an op­tion!
