BOLDLY GOING WHERE FEW MEN HAVE GONE BEFORE, JIM OLD ATTEMPTS TO GET TWO PBS IN AS MANY DAYS AT THE RICHMOND RUNFEST

RACEBOOK

RICHMOND RUNFEST

You have an idea. In your heart you know it’s not a good idea. When you mention it to friends they look at you seriously and tell you it’s a bad idea. But you do it anyway. I was going to run two races in two days and shoot for a personal best in both. Yes. Yes, I know. Bad idea.

This year the guys at the Richmond Running Festival decided to expand their popular event across a whole weekend. They moved the Kew Gardens 10K to the Saturday along with the kids’ races, while the Richmond Marathon, Half Marathon and Family Fun Run were held on Sunday. The 10K holds a special place in my heart, so I signed up for that one as soon as registration opened. The idea of also running the half entered my head a little later when the organisers dangled a particular piece of bling before my eyes. The “Laureus” medal would be awarded to anyone racing on both days of the festival. It bothers me that I’m such a sucker for that kind of thing.
