MK Festival of Running – Half Marathon
by Coralie Anderson
So, the morning had arrived of the MK Festival of Running Half Marathon. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this race. Having run it twice before I don’t really recollect enjoying the course on either occasion! However, the last time I ran it three years ago, I got my PB so that was an incentive enough to tackle the course once again.
The day was certainly not a day to even consider a PB given the weather conditions, it was a horrible cold, wet and windy morning. As I sat in the kitchen eating my marmite on toast (minus the crusts) and drinking a cuppa I was trying to remind myself why I was doing it when I could have had a Sunday lie in! My sister had travelled up from south London specially to support me so with that in mind we bundled into the car and headed off to MK.
