Parkrun with company

I was so pleased to be joined at Killerton Parkrun by Louise, parkrunner tourist and ULTRA MARATHONER!  (Madam stil recovering from 2a 4 hour bug so left at home)

We ran separately (she was meant to be ‘pootling round’ as she has Bideford half marathon tomorrow) I went the same strategy as my Slay the Dragon run that is go as fast as you can on the way down to make up for the slow hills.  Lap three, hill three took its toll and the lovely Lousie appeared at my shoulder and offered to carry me (least thats what I thought she said) I graciuosly declined her kind offer not wanting to break her back but did try and cling to her side instead. Gracious as ever she let me cross the line in front of her! (If that was pootling I would HATE to run with her going flat out.)

After a quick chat with the other runners we headed back to Exeter to Giselle’s sister’s for tea and cake and a quick catch up before I headed home leaving them to their day and pre half marathon preparations.

Pleased to say got a PB today!

Good luck to my bloggy friends with their 13.1 miles tomorrw.

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
