I really enjoyed running the Stroud half marathon with thousands of other runners. It was an incredibly well organised race with the whole team doubling up as motivators to get us through the last few miles! The sunshine helped too!

I was running to raise money for Scrubditch care farm in Gloucestershire. The farm team came down to see us.

Cllr Steve Dechan in the photograph had been running ultra marathons before doing Stroud but he still got round with a smile on his face.
