Coventry Half-Marathon 2015

After a break from blogging for nearly 5 years, I'm back!
What better than to start with telling you about our race in the Coventry Half Marathon on 1st March?
Having nearly run ourselves to death in 2009, Trevor and I gave up distance running. We ain't exactly youngsters you know!  However, we recently took our running shoes out of retirement to help raise funds for Pawprints Dog Rescue (Rugby). (Just in case you have a few quid to spare, please visit our fundraising page here. I know I'm cheeky but it's worth asking!)

Trevor, just before the run.

....and little old me.  Brrrr, it was a chilly morning.

I finished the race in 2 hours 23 minutes and Trevor strolled in 14 minutes after me at 2 hours 37 mins. We stayed together until the 11-mile mark then Trevor took it more slowly.

The finishers medal is lovely!
