Our very own James Clark took to the route
of the Great North Run again, but this time in his car. He drove to the
spot at South Shields where he and 50,000 other runners ended their road
pounding. You can read his web
He went through a number of pain barriers,
umpty bananas and buckets of water, let alone the ice for his feet, but
he did it.
As with a huge number of his fellow runners,
he looks back on the event with harsh memories of every grinding mile,
and the sheer exhilaration of the finishing line.
But will he do it again next year...?
Take a look at the BBC
Tyne GNR pages and either relive or get a feeling of what it was
like on the day - could you be running next year too?
