2019 Running Achievements

Running achievements

In a year where running was very much up and down for me, I have achieved more than I feel like I have done. There are highs and some very lows for me, and I even considered pulling out of one race mid-race which hasn’t happened to me before. We can all find fragile moments at times. You hope that the running community pulls together and supports each other, but that sadly isn’t always the case.

Sometimes you have to just get through it yourself, or move on. Still managed to run 1107.21km in a year though! (If feeling like your mileage isn’t seeming high, just convert it to KM to get a bigger number! 🙂

Since I started running

  • I now have completed 112 races since the start of 2013.
  • I have completed 5 marathons, including 2 sub-5hours.
  • I have completed 200 parkruns, including 165 at Pontefract.
  • I have raised £2654.90 for charities through my running.
  • I have completed 5352.88 miles since the start of 2013. This is roughly the distance between Pontefract and Los Angeles, just in case any Hollywood film-makers are interested in buying the rights to my story! 🙂
