Box ticked - Edinburgh Half Marathon is done

Half marathon done and done well! Done well for me at least. I got around in 2'19"32. Get in my son!!

Even better, I feel like I could do it again next year. Last time, it took me ~7 years to consider doing it again. Lol

This photo is of me and my wonderful Mr. CT, without whom I would not have fared so well. He believed in me and pushed me out the door for training runs, spurring me on to do well. An excellent coach.

Whilst awaiting the start gun, I chatted to the chap next to me. He had arrived from Canada The day before, was running in a kilt and had raised over $8,000 for Diabetes Canada. What an impressive individual. I so hope he enjoyed his run.

Right know I am cream crackered and my joints are stiff; but I'm about to eat ice cream direct from the tub with a big spoon. Happy days.
