Part one of my challenge now complete!

24 August 2014

Whirlwind of a week in the lead up to getting to Wales for the bank holiday weekend in the Wye Valley but worth it. We have really made the most of being back at Granny and Bapa's house and gone for day trips such as the Dean Heritage Centre vroom on a broom trail, Hay on Wye yesterday and going back in time with old Annuals such as Topper and spending far too much on books which was followed by, perhaps making the error of, going up Hay Bluff at the end of the day. Maybe not such a good idea the day before a race but hey, who said you had to think things through.... and the views were fantastic plus the boys, for some bizarre reason, don't protest if you suggest climbing up such a hill but do if you walk by the river...

My support crew of children and husband were on hand today and I will send the photo for the blog when we get back home as no ability to connect the camera up until then. The Severn bridge half marathon was really well organised and a great event to take part in, and a privilege to be able to raise awareness of Carers UK by wearing the official running vest and I did not spot any other runners in the same vest – so let's put a challenge out there for more runners to be seen wearing!!

The weather was kind today and after fighting my way through the crowd at the beginning I was really chuffed to get a time of 1 hour 39 mins especially as I am in marathon training mode. After the race you were greeted by a bag of goodies which were quickly checked out by the boys and sought after! I can't quite believe that in a few weeks I will be doing double the distance (slower obviously) but really why? Umm will have to come back to the answer to this question aside from it will be by the sea?!

Now being lobbied for a game of vortex outside so fingers crossed my legs will work.....
