My first ever 10k

WooHoo  - Today I did my first ever 10k and it rocked.

I'm not a runner and probably never will be so planned to walk the route along with my hubby (thanks babe for getting up early and walking with me). Plus lucky I did plan to walk as I ended up forgetting my inhaler - again!!

All week it has been raining here and we have eagerly been watching the weather forecast, and luckily the rain gods were on our side and it stayed dry and the sun even came out.

As you can see from the outfits it was definitely the Awesome 80's, with plenty of neon :)


I did do the full 6 miles, but for some reason we only had markers for miles one and two, that I saw anyway!


The medal is super awesome and very heavy too, and is now my new favorite medal on my medal display rack.

A special thank you to Marisol who took my finishing photos, she was much faster than me, so was able to wait at the finish line to catch my last dash (yes I did actually run that bit).
I was hoping to finish in under 2 hours and my official chip time was: 1:57:35.9 so I now have a record to beat for my next 10k. I did also plan to use my Nike running app, but some how managed to pause it after 1 mile and didn't realize.  Also pleased to report I wasn't last, 5 people finished after me (and we wont mention the people who cut out the last turnaround!!)



  1. Great job! I am glad that i was able to capture the moment of you crossing the finish line. I looked at my other medals and this one by far is the heaviest and coolest looking.

    1. it was fun, but think it will be a while before i do another one!

  2. Congrats on another medal! You'll be doing 26.2 miles before you know it! :)

  3. I love the medal it is so cool. I am a little jealous.
