Hey Sticky, well done awesome time in a great race, especially that last hill before the finish. Think that nailed my cramp!
Sarah you did a great job pacing, I kept looking for you on the cutbacks. In short you paced me from a distance.
Thanks for the parkrun wishes RR, Angela, Stan and Malcs ( and anyone else I have forgotten due to baby brain.) The run was a bit surreal really. As Stan mentioned the start is packed and I got held up with the buggy. In addition a kid with earphones swerved across my path to drop off a jacket. He very nearly tipped the buggy over as it carreered across his path on two wheels. Needless to say I wasn't polite about my thoughts. To his credit he apologised afterwards.
Mini Hans had a meltdown 10 minutes before start that necessitated a preemptive feed and lightning nappy change. Despite all the stress I ran a solid 21.31 so not a PB but ok. I just felt I was working hard for an average pace. I guess that's running for you.
However I have 50 under my belt and I felt quite proud to have done half of those pushing mini me. I do wonder where I would be sans buggy though.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
