This morning I signed up for the Great Manchester run 10k, and to my amazement when I told others in the family my daughter and her partner also signed up. She is a fitness instructor, 23 weeks pregnant and still teaching all her strenuous classes and he is a regular participant in her classes and does a bit of running as well. They can both run at least twice as fast as me, but she is going to use it as a target for returning to fitness after the birth and he is just joining in. My husband and the other daughter (who is more of a lifter than a runner) are going to pilot the baby in a buggy from place to place on the route and cheer us on. So suddenly we are planning a full on family event and I am very excited at the thought. Just got to graduate, which I plan to do on Saturday at the Exeter Parkrun and then think about working up to 10km over 8 months or so. It should be possible, shouldn't it? Even for an almost pensioner?
