I always wanted to reveal my secret running affair to my family around Easter but due to the Beast from the East and Beast from the East 2 - Ice and Snow return! I lost valuable running time which has now left me with 5 runs to graduation.
I kinda suspected my other half was getting suspicious after the family bought me a GPS watch because i was taking my 'walking' serious and as he is an ultra runner he knows about pace. After a few questions at the end of our Easter week away i had to reveal my secret and where i was up to. Even though i have not yet graduated he was so pleased and said how proud he was of me for doing this and trying to do it alone. I told him i wasnt alone, i told him all about this site and how everyone had supported me even through the low parts and he was blown away! Ive never seen his face light up so much and he said he couldnt wait to go for a run with me. I did say im not ready for that yet but i will be something for me to look forward to. He now wants to get me some decent running trainers and gear as he says i deserve it. Not sure im ready for that either as i would like to lose some weight first before donning the lycra lol.
As for the kids.....whoa! They were so thrilled they jumped on me and hugged me so tight. They couldnt believe i had been geting up at 7am whilst on holiday to run without telling them lol. They now want me to do a 5k colour dash run with them. Oh my days what have i let myself in for??
