Today I was happy to come across on Twitter an 8.2 mile race being held this Sunday near home, the Garmin Kingston Run Challenge, and I am now registered.
This has come at the perfect time, being held the week before I attempt my second half marathon in Amsterdam, especially since my training plan has gone out the window the past few weeks and my recent toe injury (good news – it isn’t broken and it’s healing!).
For anyone local interested in doing the race, registration closes 9 pm 8th October and there is also a 16 mile and 24 mile option and there will be 7 paced groups to choose from to help runners achieve their desired finish time (6 – 12 minute/mile).
I’m hoping to better my 1:29 time from earlier this year.
