I did it in 33:22, which I am…
satisfied with 😉
I can’t say I didn’t give it my all because I did. When I crossed the finish line I couldn’t even think straight, let alone speak.
Running on grass and mud is MUCH harder than running on pavement. For the majority of the course, my view looked like this:
And the photo above doesn’t even begin to convey the hilly terrain.
But my training route is almost 100% flat and looks like this:
Not quite the same, eh?
It was brilliant fun, and the boys entered the mini-run after the main event, so we all had a really lovely morning.
The weather was mild and dry, and overall, it was great.
So great, in fact, that I’ve signed up for a road-race 5k in 5 weeks time (new goal, hurrah!), to try and bring my time down. And this time it won’t be 3 days before my period is due, heh heh.
Mwah ha ha ha hah!
I ran with a heavy heart. Pre-AF spotting showed up 30 minutes before I started the run. After running 5k through Jurassic Park though, it didn’t seem quite so terrible, and I even managed to hold it together while standing next to a massively pregnant woman in the bacon roll queue. Go me.
