First run as a 50 year old 👾

Good morning.

We'll today was a day of firsts.

I live in Weston-super-Mare and have always fancied a seafront run. But I'm a bit unsure and nervous when it comes to doing something a little different - I'm a bit of a comfort zone kinda girl! But today I did it - and loved it! We have a lovely prom and did the full stretch - the distance was 4.75k so I did a bit extra to make it up to 5.25k :-).

And now I'm sat here watching my hubby play about with his power kites - it's glorious here.

And yes, I am now 50! I had 3 days of celebrating so I was determined to get back on it and have a good run - bit slower than normal but still good.

The sun is beating down now - great day off!

:-) xx

So jealous of your seafront run! I still haven't done one yet. Bah

You will have to make it a regular occurrence now.

Thank you :)

I have a feeling I will do more too - and why not, it's just there down the road. And there's plenty more not many miles away, so I should take advantage of them.
