Today’s race took me slightly by surprise. I’m really not sure why: I’ve run the same 10km course the first Sunday of most months for the past 4 years. But, a surprise it was, and I was somewhat under prepared. Muggy, wet weather is not what my lungs like, and I had to pause on the second lap for a bit of a wheeze. But, I was curious to see what the medal was like (I was very tempted to give up on the whole thing out of sheer laziness) and I am so pleased that I stuck it out and finished in a reasonably OK 55:41. It is a super medal! One of my favourites. I shall be trying to get another one in June.
