Mabox complete the half marathon
28 September 2015
Liz, Tim and Sarah competed in the Ealing 2015 Half Marathon this weekend and have just about recovered from the experience to tell the story.
Thinking it would be good team building activity, at the start of the summer Sarah sourced a range of sporting activities from the macho Tough Mudder to the funky Run to the Beat. In the end she picked the local Ealing Half Marathon as the team’s first Fitness Challenge. After the usual excuses from the team “oh I have a family reunion that weekend”, Liz and Tim put their best foot forward to join Sarah in the challenge.
Throughout the summer the team trained each week down by the river, slowly building up the distance, until the prospect of completing the half marathon was just in their sights.
On the day of the race they set off with great gusto and glorious sunshine. Despite the undulating hills taking the wind out of their sails, they managed to finish in respectable times. Tim, a half marathon veteran, completed the race sub 2 hours, while Liz and Sarah finished together with a great first time of 2:10.
Sarah’s feet are in bad shape but she is already thinking of the next challenge; although she may be on her own this time!
