A fun 5k

A fun 5k

I've been trying to stick to my Asics plan for the HM in September but there was a local fun run yesterday and my 9 year old wanted to do it. We had a great time, the run was really good on a flat course and very well organised. He managed really well and we mostly ran at a slowish pace with some breaks for walking when he got tired. We made it round in 34 minutes :)

I never knew before that what "ugly" means in your part of the world is the opposite to what it means here! ;)

That's almost as fast as me, and I run the whole way. Aren't children amazing?

They certainly are. He finished ahead of me of course. Sprinted for the line after being dead beat just round the corner beforehand! He's already talking about the next one!

Great run & a great cause. I have experience of the wonderful care at St Elizabeth Hospice when my Dad was ill. And very nearly worked at Martlesham Heath (ended up in Woodbridge by an ironic change in circumstances instead).
