Yesterday I ran the Larmer Tree marathon in the New Forest.
Not content with already having signed up for 4 marathons in March, mid Saturday I got a phone call offering me a place at the amazing Larmer Tree Marathon. While keen to take this place, 2 problems stood in my way… It’s 4hours away, and I did not have accommodation. Thankfully someone offered me the couch in a hotel room and a plan was formed.
What a great decision it was. This race is quite simply stunning. The beautiful terrain around the New Forest made for quite the outstanding day. The pace was steady and I completed in 5h 8m and 12th in my age group.
2 down, 3 to go
