I've done it! But my God it was hard work. I don't know if it was lack of sleep or poor hydration, or just one of those days, but from 5k onwards I struggled.
I found a new route through the fields (and didn't get lost once. Maybe that's where I went wrong!)
I borrowed cheekychipmunks snails, but they were too fast for me today. And sorry Oldfloss , my feet did not kiss the ground, they slapped it. Not pretty.
But 'tis done. And I'm just starting to get that glow of achievement. Now, if you'll excuse me, I believe I have a badge to collect (wow, writing that is getting me excited!)
Happy running everyone!
