Not going to bore you too much but just to let you know I’m getting prepared for my first big chipped race in the Bristol 10k on Sunday. I bought the new capris before I knew I was doing this and then dashed out to buy a new top to go with them this week. The orange is very bright. My snail and Kat family badges will be coming with me to remind me of my lovely VRBs and admins and the c25k Graduation badge will remind me how I got to be doing this amazing thing. cheekychipmunks and I have been private messaging each other excitedly (never!) and we’ve all arranged meet up before the race. We won’t be running together now because I am in an earlier wave. UpTheStanley is rather shocked to be in the first wave. He says he’ll start at the back of his wave to let the young/club runners go like greyhounds .
It’s going to be a bit cool before the run, so we are going to raid the bags I’ve set aside for charity and take something warm that we can throw away once we get going. I saw this happening at the London marathon and couldn’t believe people would ever get their clothes back again. But no, it all goes to charity afterwards. What a brilliant idea.
The great thing is we also get a last minute stay with friends near Bristol on their wedding anniversary weekend. Running is getting us out and about and seeing real (non-running) people too.
Have a lovely weekend everybody and enjoy your running wherever you are
