Eek! This arrived in the post today...😀

My number for the Great Bristol 10k! The race isn't until the 15th May, (two weeks after my first 10k event, which is a trail race). I am really looking forward to the Bristol 10k as I am running it with my sister ( who has a few HM's under her belt😮!). It will take on a special significance to us both, as it is in Bristol, where we were both born and we will very much be running in remembrance of our lovely Mum, who passed away just a couple of weeks ago. Tough times...they make you tougher don't they?x

I'm sorry for your loss Sandra.  That's awful.  Hopefully running gives you some peace and what a lovely event to do with your sister in remembrance.  I'm sure the run will be very special to you both.

What a lovely thing to do in memory of your mum.  Life is tough at times, but I find running a real comfort,  and hope you do too

Eeek! I think I'm going to have nightmares about the trail race!! With everything that's gone on recently, I haven't had a chance to check out any of the course as I had planned, so its going to be a case of just going with the flow, and praying hard that I can manage the hills!
