Woooo - First Race Done

Woooo - First Race Done

So after having a meltdown all day over the race tonight, I am pleased to report that I finished it and ran most of the way. The hill beat me on the second lap and I walked half of it but I did better than I thought.....and....I wasn't last. Not far off though.

Time - 37.06 which is much better than I thought.

So, pic of me and my first ever medal has to be shared with my couch family.

Thanks Beetie. I have a big smile on my face and have. Feeling I may struggle to sleep tonight.

You'll get one. Never in a million years did I think I was capable of that until I met Laura!!!!
