Leaving the heart rate strap at home, forgetting pacing and simply running with heart at the Paddock Wood Half Marathon this morning.
The first race of the 2022 Smilinggg Season far exceeded expectation, achieving a personal best of 1:25:14.
As always, a massive thank you to the race organisers, marshals and spectators. The encouraging claps and words of support gave the boost of strength needed at key moments.
Congratulations to all runners. Great to share the course with my good friend Marcus too.
Here’s to the next 9-months of stepping and smiling towards new goals.
Steps 👣 + Smiles 🤗
Keep #Smilinggg 💛
