Christina is only HALF crazy – 13.1 miles for BirdLife Cyprus

Update posted by Christina Ieronymidou On Mar 20, 2017

It's official: I survived my first ever Half-marathon! It was slow, but a better than average pace for me and 'the wall' didn't hit me too hard. I even got some nice little boosts to help me along, including an auspicious Hoopoe fly-by.

Thank you SO much to all of you who sponsored me! We've surpassed the arbitrary target I set for fundraising - woohoo - so let's raise even more! If you haven't had a chance to donate yet, don't worry, I've extended to fundraiser so you can still do so.

Don't forget, some of my colleagues and I will be taking on Dorian's Challenge on 8 April. But in the meantime, my legs need a break to recover.

With the half-marathon in sight, I've lured a few of my colleagues and friends to join me in a second challenge: Dorians Challenge, a coastal obstacle course race in April!

5km. 20 obstacles. Salt water. Madness.

I'll be collecting my race pack in the next few days! Exciting!

Training has been going fairly well. I've been putting in the miles, at home and abroad while on work trips, with no major issues or injuries - touch wood.

Today I ran my longest training run before the big day in two weeks. Apart from accidentally spending a mile running on sand and up and over boulder groynes (worse than running in Venice!), it felt like a good run.

I'm slow, but steady, so even though I may finish last, I'm quietly confident that I will at least finish.

Wish me luck!
