Hi. My name is Adam Saunders and I live in the world of 1's and 0's. This is my tiny contribution the vastness of internet information. It's just an opinion and should you have your own, please comment it!

Today could be my last day. It's Bristol Half Marathon day, and I'm up at 6am to get a big breakfast and get myself ready for the grueling 13 mile run.

This is going to be a REALLY tough challenge. I'll post when I return to let you know how bad it really was.. If you don't see anything.. I didn't make it :-)

I made it!!

Didn't do too badly either considering I've never run so far in my life. My previous furthest was about 6 miles, so this was a shock to the system! I found it incredibly hard once I hit the 8 mile mark. At that point my calves started to seaze up, and from then on it was just incredibly uncomfortable the rest of the way. I was actually doing well time wise until that point, and then had to slow down to avoid getting a crippling cramp. No way was I not going to finish the run, so the rest of the way was mixed up between running and walking, and the only way to stay in the game.

I managed to finish in 2hours and 22 mins. It's neither fast nor slow, but pretty good considering I never really did any training, I'm really pleased with it.

I have to say though. This evening.. I ache, like I never ached before. Just my legs (probably the rest of my body distracted by the pain in my knees mainly, but.. boy are they agony if I actually move around.
