Last weekend I took part in my local 10K run. It’s an event which incorporates a 10K, half marathon and full marathon and starts and finishes at the local distillery.
So the marathon runners set off at 9.30am with the 10K and half marathon starting together at 10.30am.
I think the smiley face was to take our minds off the fact that we started on a bit of a hill!
Everyone lined up and bang on 10.30am we were off. The race itself headed out of town and within a few minutes we were out on nice quiet country roads. It was a lovely morning but a little windy on the way out.
When the 10K runners reached a certain point we turned and headed back to town leaving the half marathon runners to carry on. Thankfully the wind was at our backs on the home run which meant I somehow set a new PB by 10 seconds, which came as a great shock to me!
It was a great event, well organised and with a lovely medal as you can see.
Roll on next year!
