Less than a week…

It’s now less than a week until the Cardiff Half Marathon when I will be joining more than 18,000 people in Wales’ biggest road race. It’s my first ever half marathon so, as expected, I am a little apprehensive – but equally excited!

I’ve trained as hard as possible over the last few months and completed my last long run this morning covering approximately 10 miles. I’m not going to reveal my time, because I had to stop twice to answer phone calls – rest assured, my phone will be switched off on Sunday morning!

The Cardiff Half Marathon is fast becoming one of the top races of the autumn running calendar. Starting by historic Cardiff Castle, runners pass Cardiff City stadium to the picturesque Penarth Marina and the scenic barrage.

Running through the iconic Cardiff Bay, you pass the Doctor Who Experience and Norwegian Church. The new course now takes in the beautiful Roath Park Lake, before a big finish back in the heart of the city at the impressive Civic Centre.

I’m running for Dogs for the Disabled and am hoping to raise a few more pounds before the big day. Please visit my JustGiving page for more information!
