Royal Parks Half Marathon

I got an email over the weekend from the organisers. The race this year takes place on Sunday 11th October. You can register your interest and be advised when the ballot opens by going to the site or going to http://www.royalparkshalf.com/Take-part-ballot/. The ballot opens tomorrow (27th January) and runs through to 4th February. You get notified on the 6th Feb if you got a place.

I tried to get into the race last year, and lost out during the ballot. Nonetheless, I’m going to try again this year. Currently trying to build up my mileage again after an extended down-period due to work pressures. Yes, as much as magazines such as Runner’s World and medical professions dispute that, work does impact your mental state and that in turn carries over into your running. Some may find it easy to ditch the work mindset and run, others (like me) don’t find it so easy…
