I did it! I had the support of an incredible team and the event organisers were amazing but I broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest female to run a half marathon – 2 hours 16 minute and 3 seconds. This also gave me a 11 minute personal best time. More importantly I help raise money and awareness to YoungMinds mental health charity for children and young people. . . I do have to give a massive shout out to Holt cc for there amazing t-shirts/ logo printing to help promote the Retro Running World Championships next year. And let’s all talk about how great the banana shorts are from Happystride. . . It goes to show consistant training and determination gets you results. Happy Monday everyone. . . #retrorunning2020 #running #backwardsrunning #manchesterhalf2019 #manchesterrunning #womeninsport #womenfitness #womenrunning #rehabilitation #manchester #manchestersport #determination #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #youngminds #inspiringyoungminds
