When I signed up for Run Norwich, I was well into my training and on track to smash my PB.
Then I had a mental health crisis and didn’t feel like running.
When I finally got back into it, I had an accident and broke my arm – 9 weeks before the event. I was finally cleared to run 3 weeks before Run Norwich, but I almost decided not to go as I gained weight and was generally so unfit. However, I had already raised £100 for The Feed and didn’t want to let people down, so I decided I was still going to take part and walk if I had to.
The supporters were amazing, cheering me on, even though I was 10-minutes slower and sometimes walking. I am proud I went. It’s not about that PB, it’s just about taking part. I had an amazing day.
