InstaSays – What is your biggest running achievement?

This question was suggested by Colin and I think it is a great one. But honestly, I am struggling to answer. There are so many. I think starting running was a huge achievement at the start. Then having the courage to attempt a half marathon. Immediately after the half marathon thinking how ridiculously long a marathon is so I would NEVER do that.

Somehow, I gained the courage to do a marathon. They are HARD and a LONG way, so the courage to sign up to another one knowing how tough it would be! The list goes on as I have obviously signed up to more since!! 

But, I suppose that if I had to select one achievement it would be my marathon PB in New York. Not only did I train hard for that, I was running it on my own and I just had the best time! 

So, below are the responses from Instagram last week. Remember to check my Instagram stories for this weeks question to get involved. Also, if you have suggestions for questions please let me know.

I will hopefully hit 1000 miles run this year and I am so pleased it’s an idea for some years.
