This was the year my poor husband to be saw me stagger over the finish line, directed me to the nearest toilet and I was ill. He made me promise after that no more full marathons!
Race for Life 5k, Leicester – 24 minutes I think
Race for Life 5k, Chester – 24-25 mins I think
Robin Hood Half Marathon (21k)– 1 hr 58
Hastings Half Marathon (21k) – terrible undulating race! My time was abysmal!
Leicester Half Marathon (21k) – in the days when this race started at Mallory Park. I enjoyed this race – it was a bit chilly from what I can remember though – so it was beany and gloves time.
Berlin Marathon (42k) – 4 hr 21
Race for Life 5k – 21/22 minutes I think this was my super duper time where I did a PB of 21 minutes – never did a race in that time again…..it was 2004 or 2003. I came 6th in the whole race which was awesome for me.
British 10k, London – can’t remember time but I know this year it was a hot year and both my friend and I struggled to push through but I think I did a reasonable time.
Newark Half Marathon – my time on this was approx 2hr15 – it was a heatwave and the race didn’t start until something stupid like 11am and as I was running round I watched in horror as people passed out, threw up and pulled out of the race. I crawled round and finished but with a bit of heat exhaustion vowing never to do it again!
London Marathon (42k) – 4 hours 24
First and best marathon from enjoyment point of view. The crowds were awesome, the people that helped me train were awesome – I was on a high after this race although couldn’t walk properly for a week, having to walk down the stairs backwards!
Dublin Marathon (42k)– best not to say as it was a long time (over 5 hours – had to walk part of it as had injury – stupid me kept going!)
Reading Half Marathon (21k)– 1 hr 51
Great South Run 10 miles (16k) – 1 hr 30 I think – I remember being disappointed with this time

Kingston 16 (25k), London – can’t remember time but I think it was a reasonable one
Nike 10k, London – not sure of time
Flora 5k – not sure of time
The Great North Run Half Marathon (21k)– 2 hr 20 – First Half Marathon and was overly cautious as people had said it was hilly, got to end and felt I could keep going which tells me I could have gone much faster!!
British 10k, London – not sure of time
Nike 10k, London – not sure of time
Flora 5k – not sure of time – possibly 28 mins
Flora 5k, London – I think this was my first 5k and I did 35 mins
