Morning everyone . I am doing my first half marathon in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone has ever listened to podcasts whilst running ? If so, did they help and which ones can you recommend ? I'm getting very nervous now and need all the help I can get ! 😬

I did the Royal Parks Half. It was awesome!! There was such an amazing buzz and there's no better feeling than crossing that finish line! Xxx

Ah yay ! Thank you Jenny. I think I'll go one of two ways- either never run again or get hooked and want to do more . I'm not a natural runner so each run feels so hard ; however when I finish a run I always feel proud of my achievement - as slow as it is ! The Royal parks in October looks like a good one to do .

No I didn't. My longest run was a 9 mile run and I still managed to run the whole 13 miles on the day. The adrenaline really carries you along. It's such an awesome experience xxx

That's awesome! Good luck. I did a half marathon about 2 years ago and loved it!! I just put all my favourite songs on shuffle and off I went xxxx
