Well what can I say. Wings for Life is a truly great race and Madge50 is a great person to do a race with - for a start I think she must know everyone in Cambridge because she said hello just loads of people on route!!
So 'The Good': That would have to be the whole wonderful race experience; running with 4000 other runners; running through a really beautiful town; racing against David Coukthard in a car; the organisation and atmosphere; the fantastic medal and technical t-shirt; great company and a great pacer in Mary. I could go on.
'The Bad': That would definitely be tripping and falling flat on my face at around 9k and then running the remainder of my race with blood dripping onto the road from under the fingernail I managed to dislodge as I landed. Eeeewwww!
'The Ugly': That would be the sight of my bruises this morning. Suffice it to say I have a right shiner and my shoulder looks, well horrible. Dunno what my nailbed looks like -I put a dressing on it yesterday and haven't dared to look at it since. 😱
But am I put off doing it next year? Definitely not, I've already pre-registered for 2018 . It was fab! Oh and of course, I have a score to settle -150 metres short of my target distance. Gotta make it to 10k next year. xx
