Decathlon 5k 'race' today

Decathlon 5k 'race' today

Well mine was more plod than race but I did enjoy it. Struggled with pinning on the race number - how high to pin or how low - easier on the flat chested! Wore sun glasses to combat the brightness of the free tee shirt which could be seen from miles away so no chance of getting lost on the course. I'm used to doing my running early morning, going out at 6am so found it harder starting at 10am. OH thought he would come along to support me, be my roadie, official photographer and cheerleader. Completed in 35 mins which I'm happy with as I'm definitely a tortoise type but it was a fun 'race' and addictive. ☺️

Congratulations, nice shirt and bling and great time. I have my decathlon one on the 20th. It was the last one I did last year and the first one I will do this year, I am really looking forward to it. They were so friendly last year but there wasn't a medal so I was really pleased they have added one in this year.

You're right - they are a friendly bunch and I didnt mind having to go to the shop to get the medal and goody bag. Will do it again if I get the chance.

35 minutes is not "tortoise" in my view. Well done!
