The Knitting Sailor


I’ve had cars that wouldn’t get that far…

I did it!  13.1 miles / 2 hours 29.

What was the worst bit?  I think from miles 2 to 13 ish!  It was really strange being part of such a big event and I have to admit to being really scared about it – I wasn’t the only one – all of the others I knew who were running were in differing levels of panic – by the morning I was really thinking that I should have maybe done any sort of organised run at all before doing this one.

So what was it like?  Well there were good bits and bad bits…..

 

 

Laura and I – I’m in the bin bag chic, Laura is looking a little more glam!

There were a few other people there….

Follow us!

Really??? I’ve ran 13 miles and THIS is the queue for the toilets???

We all love a good medal

Our chariot awaits

And one day on?

Well I hurt all over and have spent the day walking around (on heels – that’s dedication for you!) looking like a bit of an idiot and using the lift allot.  I know I’m a woos.

I also signed up for the reminder service to let me know when registration for next year opens…. turns out that I might hate running, but I love a challenge!

 

If you would like to make a tiny contribution to the RNLI out of sheer amazement that I’m not dead then you can – here – but no pressure!
