If you saw Look North news last night, there was a little feature on some women from York doing their first marathon this October. Veteran Look North presenter Harry Gration will be running as well – I see him training around York sometimes.
You can follow the White Rose ladies at their website here: http://www.whiteroserunners.co.uk/
I might pinch some of their run routes in the future to help me mix things up in my training and make sure I don’t just keep running the same routes.
I was really happy to see there will be other first timers at the marathon. It’s going to be fast and flat, so there were rumours the run would be full of seasoned marathoners looking for a new personal best. Hopefully there will be some people running at my speed as well.
Good luck to the White Rose runners!
