So, I thought by participating in my first 10k last Autumn, I could take on a half marathon in my stride. Having given my trainers an extended break over the winter.....they still look like they did in the shop window......I'm giving up all my vices (well most of them) and beginning a gruelling 4 months of training.

The run is mainly off-road along off hard baked red African dirt roads across hilly terrains reaching an altitude of 1150m!
