I thought this challenge would be a good way to test my pace after the Christmas blow out!! . Another reason this appealed was the name of the challenge Mirror Mirror. 2018 will mark 5 years since I started running and my well documented weight loss journey / life style change. Looking back at some of the old photos I’m proud of how far I have come and definately don’t want to go back to how I was. I am much happier to look in the mirror now.
My regular Saturday morning starts off with a Parkrun at the lovely Tilgate park http://www.parkrun.org.uk/tilgate/ . If you are ever doing a bit of parkrun tourism let me know.. say hello and have a cuppa after the run.
I wanted a quicker time this week, so I put my brave pants on and started with the faster runners. There were two different starts this week to cater for all the extra people. It was great to see so many new faces.
I got a decent get a way and managed to clock 25.29 on my 190th parkrun finishing in 137th place out of a Tilgate record breaking field of 630.
Stay tuned for my next blog.. Happy Running !!
