Hi Everyone, |
Just to let you know we did it
The day started of quite wet but luckily dropped to just a drizzle as we made our way to the start (about a 2 mile walk). The drizzle stopped and we got on our way.
We both run at our own pace and I think the circuit training paid off this year as even though we didn't do as much running as we had hoped, we both managed to keep good paces up. So much so, we both improved on last year's times which was unexpected. Louise managed a time 2 hours 3 mins 47 secs and I did it in 1 hour 54 mins 33 secs. Both these times are personal bests.
It was great to see so many people running for charity.....it makes you feel very humble. The support from everyone watching cheering and clapping helps tremendously to get to the end.
Unfortunately while watching the Red Arrows at the end, the heavens opened and everyone got soaked, but despite that and the 4 mile walk back to the B&B via the ferry and the metro, we still felt very pleased with our success.
We're even more pleased to see the great support we've had from all the guys on here. So a big, big thanks to David, Steve, Roger, Mike, Aidan and Glyn...thanks guys
We're recovering in the B&B after a big roast dinner and then driving back tomorrow before being back to work on Tuesday.
