Carolyn takes on Great North Run

16/09/2012

Carolyn Johnstone was Dumfries Running Club's only runner in the Great North Run on Sunday having deferred her place from 2011.

It was a very wet day and so Carolyn found that she had to negotiate puddles as well as many slower runners who had started further forward than their ability would suggest. Having  found out about the route prior to the race, she sensibly kept something in reserve for the long uphill slog at the 10 mile mark and wasn't fooled by the downhill to the seafront. This is the point at which many novices speed up thinking the finish line will be in sight, only to find there is another hard mile along the front to the end of the race. Carolyn had been slightly nervous of how she would feel covering the distance in this, her 4th half marathon, as she hadn't been able to fit many long runs into training, but finished in a solid 2:14:21. Although the course was tough and demanding, made all the more so by the sheer volume of runners, Carolyn will probably be back to soak up the atmosphere again, especially when the goody bags and t-shirt were so good!
