Bath Half Marathon 2015 was such a memorable weekend for me, for so many reasons. Winning it was a big surprise as I was aiming to test my fitness half way through my marathon training, rather than thinking about placings. I still can’t believe my name will be on the winners trophy!

It’s also one of the first big races I ever did after joining CAC, so it is a sentimental race for me in a way. On top of that I had the absolute honour to meet and race with the incredible Mara Yamauchi (2nd fastest ever UK lady marathon runner after Paula Radcliffe), who was kind enough to offer me encouragement and support ahead of my elite start at London last year.Also my husband and club mates all ran the race too. Lorna, one of our beginners group and now a CAC club member ran it as her first ever half marathon and raised £665 for the Bristol Children’s Hospital charity.

I was so proud of everyone! Bath Half is supported by Brooks and has all the big city organisation and incredible atmosphere, in one of the most beautiful cities. I highly recommend it as it is a great course too! As always I am extremely grateful to Brooks and Kay, At Your Pace, for their amazing support. I am delighted to be able to get another good result to pay the back for their belief in me.
