#10 Virtual Runner May Fun Run (any distance) 1st - 14th May
I left this one till the last day (14th May) & wasn't sure whether to attempt a fast mile, a 5k or a longer distance, so just decided to go out & see what happened......

My first virtual triathlon completed on 17th May @ my gym

Upcoming / In progress events
#14 Awesome Virtual Running May 100 Mile Challenge
100 Miles during the month of May.
I've been running an average of 80 miles a month so decided to try & push myself in May, maybe not my brightest idea with so many events in May & a low mileage second week due to illness but I find myself at 28th May with 3 days left & currently on 88 miles......
#15 Benbecula Half Marathon
This is going to be a hugely emotional one but I'm looking forward to it - hope the weather & the midgies are kind. This also kick starts my official 16 week marathon training.
So I hear you say 15/17 already......I know......it just kind of happened!
It slows down from here though, as I say #15 starts my marathon training, but then that is the focus....& I have my eye on a marathon PB this year...crosses fingers & toes.....a marathon is a long way.
#16 Virtual Runner Wonder Runner July distance challenge
#17 Loch Ness Marathon (September)
Will I stop there, possibly not, but we'll see.
I'll leave it there for tonight, but I promise an update on EMF later this week
Take Care everyone
Lots of Love
