Bridge to 10K

My Bath Half race number arrived this morning...😂

I excitedly removed it from the envelope and held it proudly to my chest to show my two sons, who were having breakfast at the time, saying something along the lines of "Ta da! It's here!" They both looked at me slightly quizzically before saying... "Paul? Who's Paul?"

Yes, the good old organisers had sent me the wrong race number by mistake! We all had a good old laugh about it whilst wondering if maybe "Paul" could run in my number and get me a faster time?? 🙂

They expect people to dress up? Maybe "Paul" wears a 3 piece and bowler hat ;)

Noooo! I hope there's time to get it changed? When is the race?

At least you can have a giggle about it. Meanwhile, I wonder how Paul is feeling? Is he concerned that he won't be able to do your number justice? Is he fretting to his friends and family about Sandra's super-speedy time? Oh, the angst! :D
