Tonight saw the last run in the Ballycotton Summer Series. Each of the four runs was 5 miles long. For someone of my meagre fitness, each felt like a marathon. At the end of the race I picked up my plaque. To earn this all that was required was to complete all four races. Despite this it feels like getting a gold medal. This time last year I wouldn’t last 60 seconds running let alone finish a 5 mile run.
