Woo woo ✨

My first 10K race today was Blackpool's Music Run πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ—ΌπŸŽ‘

Ooh my it was sooo hot, but the atmosphere was brilliant, we had so much fun!!!

This is me with the umpa lumpas who cheer you on just before the finish line πŸ˜‚

I'm absolutely stunned to have ran it just a minute short of my personal best at 1hr 18mins πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβ­

I was expecting to be ten minutes slower because of the heat!!

But just goes to show all that training has paid off😁😁😁

I'm so buzzing..

Shower, food and off out on the town to celebrate πŸŽ‰πŸ…

Thanks everyone for your support, means so much πŸ₯°

That makes me feel bad about not running today! (To be fair, I did need a rest day after doing six days out of the previous seven.)

Amazing to complete that in today's heat. πŸ‘
