Loved this run. Tears beforehand as I was nervous and it seemed like a big challenge. We got there in plenty of time so waited around a bit but once we warmed up it was all go. I kept going and except for a loo break didn't stop 9r walk. It was slow but this time last year wasn't even upto 5km.
I loved the Scottish band, the military band, drummers, skiffle duo and the guy djing from his house. Sunny and warm. I was overtaken by a dinosaur and a house. But, I kept going. I talked to others, got a hug from one runner and enjoyed the atmosphere.
The first 5 miles flew by. 7 to 8 were hard but kept going. Had my Sis gels. I enjoyed it and kept going.
At one point the road was covered in SiS confetti and before that the ground of a jellybaby massacre. And I automatically tried to dodge their bodies scattered across the road.
All in all a fab day x
Oh and under 2 hours 30 minutes so over 15 minutes off my PB
