First official race - Wilmslow Festive 10km

MrsT82 profile image

Hi all. So I did it!! With some extra motivation from Jancanrun (not letting me tag). It was tough going in parts, freezing cold, wet and early start. Had no music in my ears as although people did, I wanted to take in the atmosphere and support. So glad I did. Had little chats with runners along the way and one of the pacers. My chip time was 1:13:11 and I am totally made up with that. A whole 2 minutes better than my own 10km three weeks ago. And I’ve not trained since due to the fibromyalgia. Totally recommend official racing.

Celebrating with red wine, steak and blue cheese. 🍷🍷🧀

Very very well done, a terrific achievement .

Hope you've enjoyed your reward

This is not just a race, this is a Marks and Spencer race... Mrs T what a cracking time, loving the meal celebration too, except blue cheese uurrggghhh devils food....😈

But I am dead impressed - you never wanted your running to be defined by fibromyalgia, and you sure kicked it into touch today.

Well done, big hugs

It’s like the Marmite of cheeses. For me the combo above is my perfect meal and would totally be my death row meal 😂 xx

Thank you. I appreciate your words. The medal is going up on the wall xx
