I Did It!

I appear to be going the wrong way

Okay I may have had a mild over dramatic freakout the night before my race, apologies but you guys know what I am like. In actual fact the race went really well and my time was not too bad and a personal best for me.

Finished the 10K in 1:01 and 410th in my category. Not too shabby especially for one who never jogged until a few months ago. I think I will do the half next year.

Also special congratulations to my hubby who successfully completed the half marathon with an amazing time of 1:58. I am so proud of you and you did fantastic.

Great day, great craic and the celebratory beer tasted amazing.

    'Long as you're comfortable in your own superstar pants, you can never go wrong...let alone the wrong direction.

    Being 410th means you had opportunity to oggle some 409 round mounds of deliciousness, but you didn't tell us how many got a gander at your sweet 'n honey'd crisp, as they bit the dust tooting from your rear.

    Well played to you and husband....CHEERS to you both!!
