So, my first half marathon is complete.
Was going well until mile 10 when there was an unexpected and steep hill. That took a lot of effort and slowed me down for the next 3 miles but hey, who cares. I still came in under my estimated time.
2.32.47 seconds. Happy with that. Thought I would be min of 2.40.
The really dreaded steep hill at Mile 2 wasn't too bad but then I had fresh legs.
I always said, I wouldn't do another but I may do the one in my home town later in the year. Now that is hilly!!
I cannot believe that last July I started the couch programme and couldn't run for a minute. What an amazing journey I've been on and I've made some lovely friends along the way.
To all those running today, I hope you all achieved what you wanted.
Thank you C25k family for all your support xxx
Ps, just look at the size of the bling!!! Not sure why my pics keep posting the wrong way xxx
