This is a running blog post with a difference, it’s about a half marathon, not a marathon and Yuk-Lam and not me.
Wives of Premiership footballers are called Wags and this term is often used as a cheeky way to describe the wives of marathon runners. Today the boot was on the other foot as I looked after the kids and we all watched Yuk-lam complete her 6th half marathon at Nottingham’s Robin Hood Half Marathon. It was another very well paced run from Yuk-Lam who finished with an excellent time of 2 hours 11 minutes.
We had an enjoyable day in the lovely autumn sunshine with our friend Phil who also had a good run in the half marathon so well done to you both. The kids enjoyed themselves, seeing their mum off at the start and looking out for her at the finish. After Yuk-Lam and Phil had finished we all enjoyed a hog roast butty each while sitting in the sun.
It was a very strange feeling for me watching all the runners getting ready for the races and I wasn’t. Nice to meet up with some of my running friends who were actually running!
