Claire's 10K went very well today, and it was a good turnout again. Here is a pic of my running club, before the race, taken in the garden the school created.
I said a few words at the start of the race and although I was saying we were all here to have a bit of a fun, some people did have tears in their eyes. I tend to have that effect, these days!
The weather was very good at the start, although there was a bit of rain at the finish. Numbers were more or less the same as last year for the 10K, although there were more kids in the 3K Fun Run this year, so I think that's a really good show. I've heard a rumour they want to try and do the race again next year, which will be great if they do.
Then a few of us went to the local pub for a meal, so it's been a good day out.
I didn't race it and chatted with people all the way around, but I did about 57:20, which I was fine with.
My mate who collapsed at a 10K a couple of weeks ago came to the race, but he collapsed again today. He needs to get himself sorted out, as I think he worried everyone!
