Julie Groves half marathon for Playskill

Julie Groves

Julie Groves ran a half marathon for Play skill, here is a brief paragraph about her run.

For those of you that know me, know that I have reignited my passion for running and what better way to indulge in my passion but to run for a charity close to my heart, Playskill.

I decided to run a half marathon, which is 13.1 miles and started training 3 months prior with 2 friends and my sister. As race day was approaching one of my friends and my sister had to pull out due to injury but luckily I was ok, although i had a persistent knee problem but that wasn’t going to stop me!

On race day, I was really nervous but excited as I wanted to do well. The course was hilly which proved difficult with my knee towards the end but we finished in 2 hours 6 minutes.

I feel very proud to have ran for Playskill and will continue my running. i have already entered another half marathon in Sept!

Thanks for supporting me and Playskill.
