I've just got back from running my very first official 5K race today which I am very pleased with! It was so hot and I was feeling apprehensive because of my groin muscle strain but I'm so glad I did it and it's a great acheivement! Up and onwards to my next 5K race in August! πŸ˜ƒ

I think I recognise that medal 🀩 Is that the two tunnels? That looks like an awesome run. Apologies if I'm wrong. 😬
