As part of our challenge we’ll be creating a few videos taken during the marathons and some training runs. We hope it gives you a feel for the challenge as it unfolds!! So that they don’t get lost amongst our other blogs we’ve created this page that lists them all together. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them!
At last the second of the 12 marathons Jamie and I (the marathon men!) will be running this year is here in video form. This is the Endurancelife CTS South Devon Marathon which was held on 18th February 2012. It was a run of two halves really, the first 3 hours were glorious sunshine, however it turned very cold wet and windy later in the day. As you’ll see from the video I had some thoughts on that! As with all Endurancelife events the views and organisation made it a fantastic experience. Something that we won’t have at the Blackpool Marathon on 11th March!
As you will have seen in other posts shortly after the Anglesey Marathon we had a training run up at Steel Rigg on Hadrians Wall. This is a fantastic place to go running and plenty hilly which is ideal training for the South Devon Marathon on 18th February. We were joined on the day by a fellow marathon runner Liz, she is also completing 12 marathons this year, some of which she will be doing with ourselves.
We’ve created a video of the day, it’s a little long but the views were too good to cut!! We’ll make sure future video’s aren’t full length feature films like this one!! ;o)
Good News! We’ve now had a chance to compile the video from our first Marathon, the Endurancelife CTS Anglesey Marathon which we both did on 21st January 2012. As you will see from Jamie’s earlier post it was an incredibly difficult day but incredibly enjoyable. Take a look and see for yourselves, you’ll also get to see Jamie rant for a while towards the end. Enjoy!
