So pleased to have completed the Reading Half Marathon on Sunday, the first one I've competed in for over 30 years. A very slow time (3hrs 14mins 06secs) but the only thing that mattered was finishing ok and not taking any chances with my heart.
It brought back memories of why I used to do these, it's so much fun.
I'm suffering now with aching muscles and the worst blister I've ever had, on my ankle, but doing it was so worthwhile, in spite of the pain.
There were times, after my heart attack, when I thought I would never be able to do one of these again. But this proves to me that everything's possible, if you want it enough.
Thanks everyone, especially my wife, for the support you have given me throughout everything.
