Great South Run – Tamzin Evershed dances her way through a brilliant 10 miles

My first foray into running as an, ahem, “older” lady was five years ago when I trained from semi-couch potato to half marathon in a few months. I did it alone with a BUPA training plan and running wasn’t yet a part of my life. It was a work team thing and I got round […]
