Great North Run was the first running event I ever watched. It was 2007 when I first saw thousands of people running in the streets and that was long before I gave running a go. At that time running 13.1 miles sounded impossible to me.
When I started running, Great North Run was the first event I wanted to participate. It was in February that I registered and got a confirmed place in 2012 GNR. Then after a few months I found that I am not gonna make it this year due to some travel issues.
And this failure led me to a greater choice. I did register for Swissalpine marathon. Running a marathon was something that I was not even dreaming of. And I did it three months before my first planned half-marathon!
Today 55000 runners competed in GNR and I was not one of them. But what I did instead was running a half-marathon on my own this morning.
