Why You Should Try Something New

American Kara Goucher Won the weekend Great North Run a half marathon that bills itself as the biggest half marathon in the world. Goucher, who won bronze in the 10,000m at the World Championships last month, said: “My focus all year has been Osaka and it wasn’t until after that that this was even an option.

“I’d never run anything longer than 10k so I just wanted to stick with the leaders for as long as possible.

“It was pretty funny, people thought I was Paula the whole way. I felt so bad that I was crushing everybody!

“Running alongside her the first few miles I just thought: ‘Hopefully someone is getting a picture of this’.”

She is a real inspiration to all beginners out there. To run 21K for the first time and win it by beating a legend, Paula Radcliffe was incredible. It shows every one you dont need to fear doing something for the first time. Always ask yourself when is the last time you did something for the fisrt time. That way you will find yourself doing great things.
