5k Race Recap - where are the stats? I need my stats!
I had a 5k race this morning. We were supposed to be at the venue at 8am. At 7.41am my husband tapped me and said 'don't you have to be at the run?'. I jerked my head awake so quickly that I feel like I've given myself whiplash. But we made it -just! I was keen to run hard.
At the starting line I remembered to start my watch but it hadn't found a satellite before the starting gun went off. So off we went. At about 3.5km a course marshall said 'you're the first woman!'. WHAT??? I felt horrible at that stage, like stopping and walking, but I just kept putting one foot in front of the other.
Then on the last hill I got pipped by one other lady. Oh well. I did my best and at this stage I'm just running for times. But where is my time? I haven't been able to find my time. Its like I'm back 5 years when it took days for results to come through. I just hope they are uploaded sometime, somewhere. I really have no idea, as I collapsed after the finish line (literally). I don't want to email (yet) as I'll look desperate!
I'm also a very proud mumma because my eldest (who doesn't really have time to run in between cricket matches) came second in the 1km event. I wonder what he could do if he started training?!
Now I'm putting heat and tiger balm on my neck - which is still hurting. I can't believe I've injured my neck because of a fun run.
