I did it. My first official Fun Run. Very very special. And I got a medal for it! My first medal.
The run was actually: bitumen, grass (oval), asphalt, red sandy dirt, red packed dirt, concrete path, soft beach sand and grass at the end. So a mix really.
I forgot to switch off my GPS but I worked out it took me 40 minutes for the 5k. I will know the exact time when their power outage is sorted and they can work their computers. I was probably the last one on the 5K but was not the last one at the finish line as the 10K were also arriving.
Now I know I can run a bit later in the day although I much prefer day break.
I took Laura with me, using week 9R3 and other. It helped. I also used my trail shoes instead of the asics. The cheap trail shoes were more comfortable. Also someone told me to not change anything. To just keep what I am used to. It worked.
So here I am, feeling so proud and cool!!!
