Reading half marathon

If someone had said to me 3 years ago, when I first started running, that I would run the Reading half marathon and do it in under 2 hours, I would have laughed and maybe even suggested that I would be going to the moon at some point too.
But yesterday after 3 months of hard training I ran the Reading half marathon and did it in a time of 01:57:38.
In case you don't know a half marathon is 13.1 miles and in this case starts and finishes at the Madejski Stadium.  Its not the most beautiful route round the streets of Reading, but the support was amazing and running into the stadium to finish was overwhelming and really emotional for me.
A day later with tired legs and a big shiny medal, I am thinking about what to do next...
