Race Report: Roseberry Topping 15/12/2013

Hardmoors Roseberry Topping marathon.

The time had come, the time for me to reach my goal of the year and finish the job of running 13 marathons in the year 13. A feat that would mean an awful lot more to me than it would to many of the running buddies I had befriended this year. Mainly because so many of them had run so many more marathons than I had, but, it's about your own personal goals as this report will identify.
