I thought I would post a little #throwbackthursday for you today.
Back to April 9th 2017, the @marathonparis my very first marathon.
I have recently been asked “What is your greatest achievement?”, whilst I have done a lot of good things it is difficult to say what is the greatest. I settled on this day, the day I finished my first ever marathon in 4:05.06, actually my slowest marathon. I see this achievement of taking the decision to step up to marathon distance, putting in the training, recovering from injury and finishing the race, as my greatest achievement. I have ran faster, ran further, certainly ran better but you never forget your first, where better than Paris to run your first marathon.
