MK Half Marathon
by Susan Johnson
I don’t think there are too many youngsters who take up running at the age of 60 but yep, that’s me! There I was approaching retirement with colleagues suggesting I would be able to find new hobbies and slow down. Sounded good to me but where to start? I’d heard about parkrun and decided to give it a go. Run, walk was my first attempt (and a few more). Now, less than three years later and 102 parkruns completed, along with other races in between, I was approaching the start line for my first half marathon at the MK Marathon Weekend. This was kind of surreal, this was 13.1 miles!
