W9R2 / 5K Race completed

β€’5 Replies

So today I was due W9R2 but Thursday night I also took the bull by the horns and signed up to do a 5K race.

I was more nervous than I thought I would be. Started right at the back. Kept running upto about 4.5k but could not get up the last long hill. Had to walk 2/3 of it but then ran the last 200 metres again. If that hill hadn't been there I would've been able to keep going. Thrilled I managed what I did and completed 5k in under 43 minutes 😎 But no medal, only a mini bag of Haribo πŸ˜• !

Well done πŸ€— I'd take a bag of Haribo over a medal any day x


Looks like those Haribo things are pretty popular!

Good run... sensible at the start and again on the hill... damn fine finish.., great job all round.

Enjoy the graduation run.

That’s fantastic - you are a race runner now!! Well done you! πŸŒˆπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Congratulations lissy!!!! I wish we could get those hills out of the way!!! That's where i too struggled today! Nearly gave up, slowed down to a walk a couple of times. I honestly think it doesn't take away any of the glory though!!!

You still finished the 5k and 43mins is a VERY good time!!! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβœ”πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβœ”πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβœ”

Agreed. I think I was sensible and very proud of myself 😁
