Penrose Woods 10k & 20K

So on Sunday I headed down to Helston for the Freedom Racing Penrose Woods 10k & 20k races. The 10k looped around the lake while the 20k continued out onto the coastal path. When I arrived I met Marty Barnfield who was running in the 10k. Here are a few images from the morning. Mine is of my usual action shot of me in the background hands on knees staggering up a steep path thinking I should of stayed in bed. All in all it was a great morning Marty ran the 10k in rapid 53:21 whereas I completed the 20k in 1:57:17. Definitely recommend it Happy Days.

Exeter Marathon

Jane with Martin Draper

I ran the Exeter marathon last weekend- a surprisingly pleasant route, back and forth alongside the river and some pretty paths- managed 4.56 which I am pleased with, considering I’m still suffering with the dreaded plantar fasciitis!!
