“Finish lines not finish times”
Our 10K EOTN ambassador Peter has been helping others to achieve their goals and it’s really helping him to love his running! His latest blog is here:
“I was so pleased to be offered the role of EOTN ambassador for the Durham City 10k.
I’ve loved running the race the past two years. Durham is a stunning city, the course is a great challenge and the evening atmosphere makes it a special event.
This year, as it’s become a 3 day festival of running with the addition of Paula Radcliffe’s Families on Track event, it’s an exciting time to be involved with it.
So a bit about me. This year I decided I wanted a different goal for my running. I’ve done a year of chasing PBs and a year of chasing distance targets. So this year it’s all about enjoying my running, taking opportunities and if possible, helping others with their running goals.
An example of this happened just the other week when I did the Stockton Duathlon. A friend wanted to do her first duathlon, a challenge she had set herself this year, so I said I would do it with her.
She was very nervous but I tried to calm her as much as I could. I’ve done a few duathlons and last year I came 7th at this event.
We made our way round together, chatting and having fun, not worrying about time and placing. As we crossed the finish line she gave me a lovely hug and a thank you. Which was more than enough for me as just seeing her cross the line had filled me with joy and pride for my friend.
It’s been a great start to 2019 so far and with plenty of races booked in, there are exciting times ahead. “
