I Did my First Event!

I completed the Great North 5k today!! I was completely soaked but so happy, yes I did walk for about 40 seconds but the uphill climb a mile from the finish got the better of me. I am now home with my new bling and t-shirt ready to wring my socks out and have a hot cuppa and a well deserved bacon sarnie πŸ˜ƒ

Congratulations. First event down and there's lots more to come, I'm sure. Whilst you bask in the glory and put your feet up, try meandering across to northernrunningguide.com where you can browse for that next trip out ;)

There's lots to choose from.

I was way slower than you!!! I was near the back I'm afraid. I went off too fast I think and struggled a bit. Although saying that I was near a PB!!! I'm just a snail!!!! Xx
