For the last 14 years I’ve been the training partner with one of the UK’s largest half marathons, the Reading Half Marathon. From writing training programs, organising the pace team & taking the warm up, my role has been to support the runners taking part in the race.
Much as I have enjoyed my time partnered with the race organisers Sweatshop, I decided that it’s time to hang up my warm up mic for the last time.
Sunday was my final event, as I focus even more of my attention on my other priorities.
Thanks to the Sweatshop and sponsors of the last 7 years Mizuno who I have enjoyed a positive working relationship.
Some members of my team of pacers have been with me for over a decade and the same for some of the warm up crew.
I feel as though it’s the end of an era but absolutely no doubt in my mind that it’s the right decision to make.
