3k became 6k

3k became 6k

Hi Everyone. Yesterday I posted that I had just finished W6R3 and was about to take part in a "colour me happy" run today in Portsmouth. Some of you lovely people replied and wished me luck, which was rather wonderful. I had trained for, and expected to do 3k and as I had just done the 25 minute run felt pretty confident I could do it. Well, today, the team I was with ran the 3k and I felt so good at the end - I went and did it again! The second 3k was a lot tougher and as the "volunteers" had a lot of paint left over, I ended up a lot greener than I started. But Naomi House Hospice is now £500 better off too - everyone's a winner! I have vowed to continue with the course next week....
