Swansea 10K / Cardiff Half Marathon

Spread the love

Now that I’ve been running for just two years I’m happy to start entering events. My only previous events were the 2012 Ammanford 10K and a 5K Park Run at Tredegar House (Newport). The Ammanford 10K was a shambles for me but thoroughly enjoyable. The 5K Park run was brilliant and a lot of fun.

I missed the 2013 Ammanford 10K due to lack of running and pure lazyness.

In September I will be running the Admiral Swansea Bay 10K with some colleagues from work. It should be fun. I’ve been told it’s a nice flat 10K (unlike the Ammanford 10k). I’m not the fastest runner but am aiming for 55 minutes.

In October I will be entering the Cardiff Half Marathon. This one I am not looking forward to but training has started with this weeks Black Mountain hill runs. My time for this is under 2hr 30mins. – again not the fastest but it’s taking part that counts.

I am running both races for charity and following a discussion with a family member I’ve decided to raise money for CISS: Cancer Information and Support Services. A local charity. You can read more about them here.
