First Lady, Kirsteen Welch
Kirsteen Welch took part in The Gloucester Half Marathon on Sunday the 20th of January. This was only the second half marathon that Kirsteen has taken part in, so she was very happy with her performance, especially with her time of 1h:24m:18s giving her a personal best by over three minutes. The first half of the race Kirsteen was ahead and keeping pace with a small group of men, then the lady who came 2nd over all, over took at around mile six! Digging in really deep, Kirsteen managed to keep up with her over the next five miles. Leaving it to the last two miles Kirsteen kicked it up a gear and overtook her. Not only that, she overtook the small group of men and kept the sprint going. She didn’t look back, just kept up the fast pace, all the way to the finish line. With a great trophy awarded for crossing the line as the first lady, she feels inspired to get her half marathon time to the sub 80 minutes and feels that her training is really paying off. Keep it up Kirsteen.
