This morning I woke up and had no idea I was going to run my first race today.
I checked e-mails and there was one from Fit Chick saying there's a race tonight want to run with me?

Well we did and guess what, we didn't do too bad.

It was a fun run 2.5 miles and we finished in 27.50.

I have a PB! I have a medal!

Well done Fit Chick and well done me!

we are plodding good runners!!!

Thanks everyone and especially Country Girl for running with me.

Yeah we did it and in a very good time I think for beginner runners. The weather was rather close and humid which meant we were rather hot at the finish but getting the medal was the best tonic for us. We even had the pleasure of passing other runners as we went around! And we ran it all, no walking was involved!

I did get a couple of piccies for our scrapbook taken by the St Johns Ambulance lady as a momento as well.

Country girl you had the same idea as me! Actually you look better than me!!!

Chick, I might have sounded puffed on phone as I was talking to you, I was racing back to car to get top to avaid chilling down too fast! Dad and Dan were doing the 5 mile run so had to wait around for another three quarter of an hour as their race started as ours finished.

Sorry forgot to say who was who, Wasn't sure it would work.
You mean I look redder than you, how can you run that far in that heat and not glow FC, mind you I don't have to run very far to get very red, I think I'll change my name to cherry tomato!!
