Done it !! 1st charity 5K complete

32:30 for a proper X country course with hills, rabbit holes & rain !! I'm proper tired but I got my medal & t shirt & had my best mate come up from Dorset for the weekend to run with me for company & encouragement - he's done 4x Marathons and countless other races so knows a bit about technique ! 1st park run next Saturday .. it's all getting proper serious ! :)

Well done Rob! I think the bling gets addictive. I also have a good friend who is training for a marathon and needs a cabinet for all her medals. Very inspiring...but I am not tempted!

Before we all started the senior marshal decided to tell us all the wildlife we would see .. you could tell the new runners by the fact they were laughing at him thinking we would see anything but sweat & tears ! :)
