Races

Race day is great! Going to a race knowing that you’ve worked up to that moment is a great feeling. I enjoy races when I am running and also when I am supporting. There is such a buzz of positivity around the whole day. Expectation, hope, support, feelings of nervousness, and hopefully of celebration and jubilation for lots of people afterwards.

My race history

I’ve done my fair share of races since I started running back in 2012. Here is the breakdown of my race history.

Year by Year breakdown

Whilst my chances of PB-ing (getting a Personal Best) in a race isn’t as likely nowadays, I still have PB-ed 30 times out of 104 races. Not bad rate, that! πŸ™‚ #machineΒ
