As part of her outstanding season this year, Keira took part in the London Mini-Marathon, and was kind enough to take the time to share her experience with us. Congratulations and thank you Keira!
Being a part of the London Mini Marathon team for the South West was an amazing, unforgettable experience. I travelled on the team bus on the Saturday afternoon to Royal Holloway College in Surrey, where every athlete from all regions in the country stayed overnight.
Upon arrival we were handed our team kit, race numbers and timing chips, at this point we attached it all to our clothing ready for the race the following day.
The next morning we were up very early to travel into London to get ready for the race. We started at Billingsgate and ran from mile 23 to 26, passing landmarks like The Shard, London Eye and the final 1km run was around St James Park and the best part was The Mall past Buckingham Palace to the finish line.
