Well I suppose it’s about my one year anniversary of starting back running. For those that have been reading this blog that long, you will remember that I ran the Race For Life last year. It was my first proper race and I clearly remember struggling to run ALL the way. But I did and I finished in a pretty respectable 38m50s.
My mum, my sister and Little Lady were all so proud of me that they decided they wanted to run it this year. So I entered us all and chose a different course as I couldn’t make the Cardiff date.
Our race plan was that little lady and I would “sprint” off (her words) while Mamgu (my mum) wanted to finish under an hour. Anti couldn’t decide whether to run or walk but ended up having to pull out due to a chest infection 😦
There were a lot less people at this RFL than the Cardiff one and I have to be honest the course left a lot to be desired. The course covered 2 rugby fields and literally zig zagged up and down the fields before going out past the cricket club then looping around and coming back the way you had came!
Little lady and I kept ourselves amused by running, skipping, hopping and walking. We even had a game of tag around the 3km mark. 😀 Little lady also made a point of high five-ing all the Marshalls after hearing me raving about how encouraging they were at the Women’s Running race the weekend before.
Little lady enjoyed herself, having her face painted and beating me in a sprint finish.
She we had a good time of just over 45mins and she snuck under the tape to escort Mamgu to the finish line just over 10 minutes later.
