I’d put a lot of pressure on myself for this race (as per). It wasn’t a time related pressure this time though – but a performance pressure. I’d completely lost all race confidence leading up to it, with my last race being a DNF and the one before that being London Marathon which didn’t exactly… Continue reading MK Winter Half Marathon
