I’ve been home all of 20 minutes and couldn’t resist posting about our fabulous morning! Wide awake at 4:10am (5:10 in old money), waited as long as I could to get up, then couldn’t resist and got up for a cuppa and some avocado (because someone had eaten the last banana 😩).
Left at 6am and pointed my car towards Southsea, where it’s been many times before. Met my “old” running buddies Dexy5, UpTheStanley, Oldgirlruns and Wimborne in the car park, and was delighted to meet linda9389 for the first time. We converse a lot on here and Strava, but it’s not the same as meeting in person. 🥰
I opted to run with Dexy - we’re a similar pace and being with her would guarantee I wouldn’t get lost! It wasn’t a straight out and back thanks to UTS’s careful course planning. 😀
We had all weather except snow! I enjoyed the elements and found the headwind nice and cooling. I also earned a nice haul of Strava bling and a 2nd fastest 10k time - 1:13:53. Cruelly my Garmin didn’t buzz 10k until 0.04k past the “finish line”! 😩
We had the compulsory photo op on the prom, trying to be socially distant, then settled in for a delicious and very welcome breakfast. Yum, we deserved it!
So glad that our matching buddies had fun on their VV10000 Midlands run - TailChaser, Katnap, Sandie1961, Shake-and-run and Windoze. We were supposed to have run together in one big group, but we all know why that couldn’t happen. 🙁 Also running “with” us was our lone VRB Beachcomber66 oop North! 🏃♂️👊
Now I’m looking forward to my bling. 🏅❤️
What a lovely day. 🥰
