Great Manchester run 10 k today

Great Manchester run 10 k today

Well I ran the Manchester 10 k today , after last weeks astrrosity it was really important to be out there and be part of everything that is great in Manchester. The weather was good for running , not to hot ! And thousands where out there . Big thank you to the marshals, the police, the ambulance service, the street cleaners and every volunteer and each and every spectator. The atmosphere was amazing .

The run had a minute silence at the start for us all to remember in our own way the terrible bombing last week , and for us all to know that manchester will live on .

The run ( for me ) was excellent and a PB at 56 mins , at no time did I walk , and I was never breathless, I was comfortable and sooo happy all the way round . I also managed to raise £400 for kidneys for life ( a Manchester charity )

All in all a most excellent day :-) 👣👣👣👣

Oh Katie , I didn't realise you were doing this, would've been lovely to meet you and have a chat :-)

It was truly an amazing day wasn't it ? One I will never ever forget . The support around the route was just fantastic, it was like the whole of Manchester had turned out .

We had a one minutes silence before the HM and straight after it they played " Don't Look Back in Anger " , it just made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck...

Many Congratulations on a new PB, that is an amazing time, you should be so so proud of yourself and raising a fantastic amount of money for your chosen charity .

Really Well done ! :-) xxx
