Hey lovelies I FINALLY DID IT!! GRADUATED AND PARK RUN ALL IN ONE!!
I was up at 6,ready to leave the house y 7.25 and met my friend and work colleague at 8,then up to the park.
This was a massive experience for me and very much outside my comfort. I can talk for Wales, where I live, 😂😂but crowds can be a bit nerve racking, but it was fine, the people there were lovely and friendly and made me feel welcome.
I've been suffering with a slight water works problem the last couple of days and really thought I'd have jump in the lake, lol. But my friend ran alongside me, which added 10+ minutes to her usual pace, but she cheered me along, alongside another runner who trails behind the trailers. But I finished it, I didn't stop and I got to the finishing line, very red faced and tired.
I did it in 47+ minutes unfortunately, but my problem distracted me quite a bit as I was dying for the loo from the start. But hey ho, I did it and very chuffed that I did. Can't believe how far I've come and can't believe the kindness from those if you who gave supported me and commented so lovely on my posts. Thank you my friends, one day I would love to meet you all. 😘
Where do I go from here now, haha?
