And I did it! This year’s run was tough and looking at the times it seems the only time I have beaten in the previous runs (2005, 2006 and 2008) was 2006, a run in which I had only had one training run for. 2005 is still the time to beat as that is the one I had trained for five months for – in rain, shine, and even sleet a couple of times.
Not got the final result yet but I did the 5km in just over 29 minutes (I saw the clock as I came in) a little slower than the winner, who came in in 14:51 but hey, there was no way I was going to beat that guy, ever in a million years – these people run fourteen times a week! Count me out!
I’m happy I’ve done it, I’m happy that the only time I’ve missed in five years was because we booked a holiday before getting the dates, I’m happy because I ran for a good cause and I’m very thankful to all who donated money (which incidentally can still be done for another month)!
Thank you for you words of support, your jibes, your donations and most of all, your support!
Now to get training for some cycling tours…
