Got back earlier from WK8R3. I had decided to take it easy today and just enjoy it. I finished the walk and turned the corner into a gale force wind and what felt like shards of ice which was rain! My pants were pulled up a bit too much and so had that to contend with also!
My thoughts were "what are you doing?" and "turn back you silly sod!"
I carried on though and because of the elements (and other things regarding pants!) I forgot about the usual leg fatigue and the first mental barrier.I just became more determined, I thought of Duncan and that hill he managed to beat! I waved at another mad runner and started to feel exhilarated even though my hands were hurting, with the now hailstones, that were raining down!
I managed to get into a steady stride and as I was nearing the end, the sun came out and the most amazing rainbow appeared across the whole sea! It was so vibrant! It straddled the pier and was truly beautiful, I felt so privileged in that moment that I burst into tears!
I was soaked to the skin, with my pants stuck to me showing curves that shouldnt be seen! But I was so happy... especially when I discovered that I'd covered 4.7K, a personal best!
