Lanzarote International Marathon

Monday, December 10th, 2012



On Sunday, Bella and I raced the Lanzarote International Marathon, organised by Sands Beach resort, which is where we are based.

It was a really beautiful course, all down the coast to Puerto Del Carmen, the organisation was great with lots of events all over the weekend, including a kids run race on Saturday which we all enjoyed watching.

For the race I ran steady for 21km then pushed on as best I could, however it was a bit harder than I thought it was going to be on the return leg, with the head wind and my quads deciding they had had enough with about 10km to go. I was very glad to get to the finish in 1st place and then watch as Bella came in to win the womens race. It is really speacial when we both manage to win the same event. I think we have done it about 6times now.

Charlie had a great time enjoying all the events with Kat. He is running everywhere, I think he wanted to take part in the kids race, maybe next year.
