Mountains And Marathons
I want to do both!
The times I've been indoor rock climbing I've loved it. When we were driving through Switzerland on Contiki in 2008 I proclaimed that I wanted to climb the Swiss Alps at some point. Fast forward 3 years, and since then I've climbed the 'nativity wall' at the quarries and abseiled the 'nativity wall' and the largest cliff they let us use on the day.
Move forward to 2010 when I took up running – the thought being that at some point I'd run a half marathon. I ran that half marathon in August 2011, and am now considering a marathon in 2012.
Why do I want to do both? It's that sense of achievement and accomplishment you get at the end that I want… that I chase…..
(And yes, that is me in the red shirt)
