Today's meet up (brief update)

Today me, Theresa (TJFlute) and Greg met up at the Jigsaw 5k run and what a gorgeous day for it! The setting was fab, blue skies, old planes and the Top Gear test track and it was FLAT!!!

We all managed to meet up OK, messages on here, texts etc....what would we have done years ago...all wear a red carnation?

The route was down the runway and then around the perimiter. After weeks of hills and mud it made a lovely change to be on road and it be flat. We all had a good run with Greg and Theresa shooting off leaving me in their wake but we all had a good run and they were there to cheer me over the finish line (thanks guys) and a new PB....I did it in 31.30 (according to my Garmin) which is a whole 2 and a half minutes faster than I've ever done 5k in before...whhoooooppppp. Was def worth getting up for!!

MrQWest, you were missed....maybe next time you and MrsQWest will be able to make it.

  • That sounds fabulous - well done on your PB!

  • Thanks! Have to say I loved the flat!!!!

  • Well done, it sounds like a great run and what a great PB!

  • Congratulations to all of you. Sounds like it was fun. Well done on your PB - that's a great time.

  • Oh what fun, having a mini-C25K forum meet-up!

  • Well done, all those hills paid off. Sorry i couldn't make it. I hope to be running again soon. It'd be good to be able to run for more than a couple of weeks without injury.

  • You were missed to Betty! We'll have to meet up at a Parkrun once you are injury free

  • FANTASTIC, well done you!

  • Well done to you all and especially you Ali for getting a pb! How good is that meeting up with virtual buddies who are real!!!! Brilliant ! Sx

  • I can confirm they are real!!!!!

  • What a brilliant 5k time! Doesn't a new PB just make you feel soooooo good!?!?

  • It does indeed!!! Still smiling

  • It was great to meet you Ali! It was such fun, and on a gloroius morning too.


  • Good to meet you too Theresa! Look forward to another meet up sometime next year

  • Ali, was gutted to miss it as we'd been looking forward to it for the past few months, but it's always the way with the littl'uns kicking up in the night when you least want them to!

    Glad you all had fun - maybe it should become a regular thing, meet up two or three times a year at a relatively local race daaaahn saaahf! Speaking to Martin yesterday (the guy who organised the jigsaw run), he said it should be come an annual thing!

  • It was extremely well run I thought. Good information/signposting/medal, even cakes at the end!

  • mmm cakes! I'll be there next time!

  • I ate yours! Wouldn't have wanted it to go to waste lol

  • ha!
