As a new runner, the most important thing about running was actually being able to run, once I discovered that I could do that, the most important thing became the bling! The bling and improving how I run. Not just working on increasing distance and improving pace, but becoming more aware of my posture and how I move, trying to relax into it a bit more.
But it is great to complete challenges and earn medals.
In April, I completed the London Marathon distance and did my first ever 10k, both challenges were awarded with a shiny medal.
The London Marathon one is a very iconic representation of a soldier of the Queen’s Guard and has a fabulous Union Flag ribbon.
The 10k Time to Run medal shows runners surrounded by a clock face.
