I will forever remember this day, what a day ?!
This was my first marathon so I really wanted to take loads of videos and photos for the future.
Everything was going really well till half way point, and after that everything went downhill. We were on target for 6 hours finish but at the end I managed to finish in 6h 57mins 31sec.
This wasn’t what I planned for but due to my dodgy ankle I was happy just to complete it.
Hi all 🙂
My name is Gabi or can call me Gabriella, I don’t really have a preference.
I’ve started running in November 2015 when I signed up for my first ever Half marathon . I never run that distance before, but I knew that hard work and dedication I can definetly run that distance.
From November 2015 till April 2016 I was training really hard for the race which was in Reading, Berkshire, UK.
The half marathon was really hard, not physically it was more hard mentally. When I crossed the line at 2h 47mins I cried in happiness. I hoped that I am capable to running and when I did it I was relived.
Since than I run many more half marathons and countless 5-10ks.
Running a marathon has been bucket list material for me and something I have always wanted to do. I managed to secure a charity place for the 2017 London Marathon and I fundraised over £1350 for MACS.
The race was incredibly hard, unfortunately I injured my ankle ligament in February so I hardly done any training for the marathon.
But as soon as I crossed the finish line I felt awesome, i felt I could do anything I wanted, nothing could of stopped me.
A week later the marathon when I recovered from the soreness I was thinking about my next challenge. That’s when I came across something called ” World Marathon Majors”.
This consist of 6 marathons across the globe:
- London ✓
- New York ✓
So me being enthusiastic I’ve signed up for the upcoming New York marathon. I missed the ballot or charity applications but I’ve found a tour operating company ( 2:09 events ) who offers places to the WMM events.
So here I am training for all these marathons. I do believe with hard work I can achieve anything I want.
I set this page up so i can share more of my experiences and stories.
Thanks for reading,
