History

I joined the Harriers in August 2003 to allow me to compete in my first running only race – the Masters Relay (at the back of Moorways).  This was followed by my first Club Track Race in September 2003 – the 1500m.  I did my first Cross Country Race in October 2003 and then went on to do almost every race distance that Season building up to the Newark Half Marathon in August 2004, which took place on the hottest day of the year – unfortunately, that was nearly the end of me and, as I staggered over the finish line in a rubbish time, I did say “never again”..........  I continued to train and race regularly and was delighted to complete the Edinburgh Marathon in May 2007, when I was 40.
