Britain’s Ocean City Half Marathon | Sunday 19th May 2019, 08.30
Running Sunday’s Plymouth Half Marathon will be a host of individuals, businesses and groups who have put hours and hours into training and preparing. Primary schools who have taught that through dedication and commitment comes great things.
The Plymouth Half Marathon isn’t just about footsteps to the finish line, it’s about taking footsteps in your life that make you stronger, more focused and part of something great.
Many of our amazing staff are not only dedicated to our guests’ experiences, but also to our city; taking part in city events like the Plymouth Half Marathon.
Staff Have Their Say…
Our Wedding Coordinator talks honestly about how she felt before she took part. Here she shares some very heartening advice:
“The pit of my stomach slowly started to churn as I noticed the signs going up around the city, advising people of the road closures for the half marathon. Suddenly, suddenly it all became rather real!
After months of training and fundraising for a charity very close to my heart – race day arrived!
After checking for about the 10th time that my kit was packed, my watch charged and plenty of fluids were on board … off we go to join the thousands of people in exactly the same boat as me!
All I need to remember is that I have done my training. Now I just need to enjoy the next 13.1 miles!!
There are so many expectations from so many different people, each of us with different reasons for doing it, but all of us having exactly the same goal – to cross that finish line.
This is your moment and no one can take it away from you, and when you are climbing up that last hill and its hurting just keep saying; “pain is temporary – but pride is forever.”
As an independent, family owned hotel, we pride ourselves on the support that we give our staff when they are passionate about things, and prepared to work hard for what they love. Be that CPD, returning to work after illness or indeed activities and events such as marathons.
We know that there can sometimes be a negative stigma associated to employees having a ‘busy’ life outside of work. Especially hobbies or passions that involve burnout style training. But we truly believe that if our staff are happy outside of work, or training hard for something they love, it will not negatively impact their ability to do their job, put positively enable them to do it better.
We would like to wish EVERYONE taking part the very best of times. May you enjoy the footsteps that lead you to the finishing line and the pride we are sure you will feel when you finish.
