Great South Run

The challenges we face

If you’ve read my column before you will know that I am quite happy to take on a challenge. There are often times when I regret the decision but am usually still stupid enough to keep going with it. I have been trying to work out why I will keep going when everything inside me, and sometimes the people around me, are saying stop.

Simplyhealth Great Run Series

Well, something very strange and surreal has happened this month. Being the swimmer I am, I have always declared that I do not run. I love exercise and always have but, regardless of which sport I am involved in, I only run if it is necessary. Four years of county hockey and I would run around the pitch as much as was needed during a game but get me to warm up by running round the pitch and I would moan and grumble and always be the last one round.
