“It went really well for me and I was happy with my performance,” said Hubbard.

“It was completely new to me. The last time I ran a half was five years ago.”

Hubbard, who prefers the 5k and 10k distances, said she may make the step up in distance in the future.

“To run competitively over that distance was tough, but in three to four years it could become something I train towards,” she said.
