Despite the wind and general murkiness, we got out there and ran our Full Monty 11.5k run with Mark this morning. He incorporated the route into a 24k run in preparation for the London Marathon in April. It has been a pleasure to meet this man. Determined, motivated, positive and an amazing runner, Mark is sure to achieve whatever he sets out to achieve. Go, Mark!
We ran 14 miles with Mark from Kent this morning, along the seafront and rugged coastline and up to La Victoria, where we saw other runners taking part in a 20k mountain run. Mark then shot off to run a further 10 miles in preparation for the London Marathon in April, where his goal is to run a sub-3 hour race. An amazing man, though Mark has only been running a few years, I am convinced there has always been a runner within him.
An exciting new route on the itinerary. The King's Castle 24k is a special run for which we need to acquire permits as the area is so protected that only twenty people are allowed in each day. The run is a natural wonder, and as well as the stunning natural surroundings, we get to see the rocky ruins of a castle built by the Moors which stands 492m high. The route takes us uphill through pine woods, across fields and then down to a beautiful little cove with crystal clear waters where we stop and refuel ready for our hilly return! Tough, but definitely worth it!
