Didn't add this before because I didn't know which race I'd be doing today until this morning. The kids wanted to do a fun run and eL Bee! kindly offered to sprog-sit to allow me to run the main race. Had it been a 10k I'd have wellied it in pursuit of a PB, but 10 miles is a distance over which I'm less confident so I decided to run within my comfort zone. My time is a PW by about 10s/mile, but I'm delighted with it all the same. <br> <br>
The race itself deserves a bigger field. It's well-organised and friendly, runs through pleasant little country roads, and is undulating without having any individual killer hills. My one gripe is that I thought I deserved a medal at the end rather than just a cup of water ... <br> <br>
Mr Speedy came second in the Fun Run and eL Bee! and the other kids occupied the last 5 places. Then they cheered me round like the little troupers they are. I am very proud of all of them.
