Nov. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- WELL done to Harrison Murray pair Sharon Clark and George Cupac who overcame their own individual hurdles to complete the Leicester Half Marathon.

For Leicester-based administrator Sharon and valuer George, it was the first time either had taken part in an event on this scale.

Overcoming a foot injury sustained on holiday just four weeks before the race, Sharon beat her own target to complete the race in 2 hours and 37 minutes – raising £320 for Cancer Research.

Sharon joined a running club several years ago, and her first event was a local Race for Life. She said: “In a moment of madness I went on-line and signed up for the half marathon and then regretted it immediately after - wondering what I was letting myself in for.

“But with the support of my running club and some very dedicated training I was soon up to 10 miles and was beginning to think this thing might actually be possible. I set myself a target of completing it within 2hrs 45mins.”

Despite running with an injured and painful foot, Sharon is now recovering and already looking forward to next year’s event.

George added: “This all started out as joke, male bragging rights, and then my wife entered me into it. With seven months to go, and never having run more than a yard, this was going to be an embarrassing disaster in the making.

“Well with shin splints, lack of breath, sweat and more sweat later, it did get easier and, the next thing I knew, the first mile was possible without physically being sick and it went from there.

“On the day of the race I felt more nervous than I have for a long time and my only desire was to finish – which I did in 2 hours and 30 minutes.”
