I have completed my first ever half marathon

Hi guys

I am so happy to tell you all that today I ran my first ever half marathon , and I loved it :-) I woke up nervous and thinking why ? Its only about a year since a graduated to 5 k was in my “pen “ for 8.40 this morning anxious but ready to start the Manchester half marathon, having been to the loo 4 times ! This has to be psychological, I can go all day on our busy nhs unit without even thinking of paying a visit ;-)

Well I loved it , the atmosphere was great, thousands ran , my new grandson had a sign on his pram stating GO grandma GO. It was fab

I ran the course in 2 hrs 8 mins. Just goes to show anyone can do anything , you just have to believe you can

Hubby is making a scrummy tea . I’ve had a bath with extra Epsom salts . Life today is good ;-)

When you write your post you have a box under the text which says "add image/photo", if you're on a computer download picture from camera or phone and add from file, or if you're on app can add direct from you phone. If you go into your post from your profile it should allow you to edit post (the button next to the "Like" button with the downwards arrow has an edit option.)

*or you could add the medal to a new post!

PS Amazingly well done that is a brilliant time for a HM! :) congratulations!!! :)
