My Wife Is Seriously Awesome And I Love Her: The London Marathon 2019

Approximately 18 months ago my wife, Emily, decided to take up running. She felt she was not as fit as she would like to be, and as a teenager she enjoyed running so it seemed a natural thing to do to take up running again. I clearly remember her going on those first few runs of just 1k.

It’s not often I write about my wife, but I felt this couldn’t be left unsaid in relation to her achievements with her running. This recently culminated in being picked as just one of ten runners in South Wales to be a part of Team Brecon Carreg, and believe me when I say it’s an awesome achievement. It really is, and throughly deserved. My wife started to run about 12 months ago seriously, and started to enter races and decided to train for the Cardiff half marathon.
