Brilliant morning in Hastings Race for life! Met up with two other C25Kers; Icandothis and Icandothistoo, which was really great!!
I started near to the front because I knew it was going to be muddy and I kept going really well, with lots of cheerers not surprisingly the motivation stays up! Sadly a girl collapsed in front of me at about 4k and I ran back to get a marshall whilst others put her into the recovery position. I continued on and as I reached the finishing line I looked up at the time and it was still saying 27 minutes something so I sprinted to get my personal best of 27.43 (I SO wanted to get under 28 minutes!)
I cheered Icandothis and Icandothistoo over the line and gave them a well desrved hug! and was really proud that we had done it!
I later cheered on a mother from my daughters school. She had lost her little daughter at the age of 7 and it did bring a tear to see her there as you can imagine.
Not your typical Sunday morning!
