My First Medal

My First Medal

Just had the most amazing morning at Pretty Muddy Race for Life- I've never entered a race or won a medal for anything before - I'm feeling quite emotional at the moment! Can't believe that at nearly 62 I was able to complete this! Thankyou Couch to 5k and all you encouraging folk on this forum- I don't post very often but I faithfully read your posts every day- that can sometimes be the difference between me going for a run as opposed to staying in bed!!! Already thinking about my next challenge!

Ahh, well done, Naughty.

Good to see you really wearing that mud (and bling!) with pride.

Wow, impressive well done! Did you do any special training?

Thanks skyesue16! I did do a course in mud management!!! Seriously- I run 3 times a week but changed one of those to a country park to get used to trail running- I'm usually a pavement person. I'm going to try 30-20-10 to improve my speed, Juicyju's recommended it- I've only tried it once and it's really hard!!!

So... basically it is a run with a free spa beauty treatment included; that sounds interesting! :D

And surely you look amazing after the mud bath!

Hehe! Secan- yes you got it in 1! We did get a freebie Champneys body scrub and lotion at the end too so it was a luxury spa treatment!!!

Looks like you've been lying down in the mud! Do they have showers there or do you get to travel home in your muddy glory? I agree with everyone else - you look fabulous and you don't look your age.

Thanks boptillyoudrop49 !! No showers!!! We washed our hands and changed our shoes - the car was a bit of a mess- we put bin bags over the seats but that didn't work!! Me and the car are all clean again now!!!🏃🚿🚙🚿😂😂

Thanks Curlygurly2! Don't quite know how I managed the specs!!! They were only a bit splashed- I had more problems with them steaming up!!!!! 🤓#steamcleaned???
