Race regrets

Fromeating untried foods to failing to work out how a She Pee actually works, even seasoned runners can slip up in races. Here Lisa Jackson and nine other runners share their blush-worthy mistakes – and the lessons they learned from them


“I’d run six marathons before I committed a cardinal sin at the Rome Marathon in 2004,” says Lisa Jackson, 48, a clinical hypnotherapist and writer from Croydon. “I should’ve known better than to drink the sinister, day-glo, orange sports drink handed out en route, but I didn’t have any other way to replenish my electrolytes, so I just glugged it down. Half an hour later I had stomach cramps and realised, too late, that it didn’t agree with me. I didn’t drink any more of it and managed to complete the race on water alone. I got of lightly, however, because when I got to the inish there were dozens of other runners throwing up while holding onto the railings surrounding the ancient ruins of the Forum.”

About Women’s Running

The weather is glorious, which means it’s time to push our training to another level. This issue, we take on the ultra: and it turns out us mere mortals can take this on! If you can already run 5K (just 5K!) we’ve uncovered a training plan that will take you up to 50K in 30 weeks. We also speak to our inspirational cover star Kerry, on making the journey from non-runner to running coach, and all with a smile on her face. And we’ve got a bumper review section this month, from bras for big boobs to the latest running shoes from all the top brands. Our big issue this month is equality: the more we run, the more we discover inequality in running – different distances and prize money for women (and by ‘different’ we don’t mean better…), and certainly different treatment. Pick up our June issue to discover what’s going on behind the scenes, and how we can work together to bridge the gender running gap.
