Yay now I can’t wait to get me hands on that t-shirt! I really tried for a PB honest, I was close just 5 seconds over, but I did manage the first mile in under 8 minutes, that downhill really helping obviously, now all I need to do is keep that going for the next 2 miles and the PB will be mine! It was my fastest Killerton since last September so things are on the up and I was happy with that.
Today was Madam’s turn the 1.75mile Hippo Calf. Oh the nerves were unbearable, both hers and mine, honestly I could have spent a very long time in the toilet before they set off! Here she is are waiting for the off
very much in the ‘zone’!
Here she is sprinting to the finish
I love the fact that she got muddy as this means she will have a shower without being coerced in to it! Happy days. Least she came back with both her trainers one of the boys was not so lucky!
Here is her winning trophy! She was third female!!! Wow, very proud Mum and very happy daughter.
I spent the afternoon giving out t-shirts to the Hippo finishers, seemed like they enjoyed it. Some talked of swimming across the rivers as the only way of getting across! Mad fools. It was a fun day.
Meanwhile t’up north my lovely running buddy was storming her way round to a 4 hour 5 minute marathon up in Manchester. Wow! At her great age that is amazing!!! Congrats to her. She is my inspiration I just wish my legs would co operate! Oh and my lungs.
