Time, my story.
What is your earliest memory with time and history? My earliest is my relationship with time and mileage, I was an amateur runner, aged 25, competitive and obsessed with beating my personal bests. My first achievement I took part in the women’s breakfast 5km run on the Victoria Embankment, I crossed the finish line in 24 minutes and something seconds, my name was listed in the top 100 table beating 400 women.
8 runs and 8 medals later, my 9th run was my last ever accomplishment, I ran in the Hackney Marshes half marathon (stupid me), the terrain was difficult it was grass I hated grass, bouncy and slippery, I preferred running on hard terrain. 13.1 miles, shin splits, dodgy knees and dozens of other injuries later, I crossed the finish line in 2 hours, 19 minutes and 56 seconds. It was a memorable moment, I cried, that was 5 years ago.
My relationship with time consist of beating my personal bests, training, heavy sweating, dehydration, injuries, carbs carbs carbs, achievements, goal, stamina and 9 medals. It was all thanks to my old Timex digital running watch (which I sadly lost it) bought from Argos, recommended by Runners World. The end.
