I went into Blackpool Marathon knowing that it would be my tenth marathon but also in the knowledge that it wasn’t the marathon I was hoping to do.

The Blackpool half marathon was becoming an annual trip out. This one was a bit of a road trip though as runners from both […]Read more "Blackpool – 25th Great North West Half Marathon (Did anyone order Wind?)"
