Techno problems with OH's phone before I went out the door and then I couldn't find Laura on my phone as I was doing my warm up walk meant that I ran with Jog fm to keep me company and my Garmin to keep my time.
Ran a route I'd already plotted - I've run parts of it before and all of it once but this time I went round the other way. For the first time, a car got out of my way, a fellow runner going in the opposite direction waved and said hello, and another car driver waved her encouragement.
Sorry not to have taken Laura with me but having something new imposed on me was probably a good thing - and I had to laugh when Shirley Bassey wanted to Get the Party Started after a couple of miles!
Woohoo - I AM a runner! Couldn't have done it without your support but now I AM a runner!! What an amazing feeling!
