In 2012 I ran my first ever Marathon at the end of October in a time of 4:12. 
Not just any old marathon, but the Snowdonia Marathon, a gruelling 26.2miles of hills and valleys, (with fantastic views of course!) This was also the first ever race i'd run since

But this was not the end.  The next year I pledged to run the Snowdon Race.  July 2013 was a roasting hot Saturday, but I finished in just under 2hrs.  Then once again the Marathon in October.
