YOUR Running Stories

Every runner has great running stories to tell.

I still know about my first race.
And of many races afterwards.

The triumphs of setting personal records, the pain and agony when I went out to fast and struggled to get to the finish line, the time I ran but should not have run because I was not feeling well, my first half marathon with leg cramps for four days afterwards...

I share some of those running stories throughout my website.

It is great to share those moments with people you know go through the same hard training as you do, who feel the nerves in the weeks before the Big Day and who can barely sleep the night before the race.

Take your opportunity here to tell me and the other visitors of this site about your greatest achievement or your darkest moments.

Take your time to share about your preparations, how you felt before, during and after the race, what it is that you accomplished or why your plan fell apart.

Finish it off with a nice picture of yourself and let us enjoy your story and leave you a few nice words !
