Sam Goodall shares her experience of the GSR supporting MND

Helena Jane Fletcher and myself are still very much involved with the MND world and one of the members who used to run this race was looking to do it for possibly the last time but in his wheel chair with people pushing so we decided to go along and support.

I personally am not a born runner, I enjoy it, I love the different races and I love parkrun but really badly self motivated. My intention was to get round, enjoy the crowds and survive. After getting totally lost looking for the parking we abandoned the car in an NCP three miles away and walked, which wasn’t a great start but we made it to the start with plenty of time and joined green band.

We were set off at 11.09 and the crowds were brilliant so we managed to get into a really good pace only slowing to wait for people but by mile 6 I was alone and settled into a nice pace and enjoyed all the crowds and music. I had hoped for under 2 hours 15 minutes and came in in 2 hours 7 minutes. Here’s to next year!
