Sunday morning I got up and got myself ready, having a good breakfast and a bottle of water along with my coffee to set me up for the event. Kim picked up Ellie & Poppy and then me on our way into Bath, and we then met up with Kirsty and Carla at The Royal Victoria Park where the event was taking place. The 10k started at 9am and was well underway by the time we arrived around 9:30. The 5k wasn't due to start until 11am so we had a mill around and got our bearings, enjoying the pre-event 'warm up' and having our faces painted by a couple of ladies from Heart FM who were dotted around the park cheering everyone on (literally - with pompoms). We pinned on our race numbers and signs for who we were running for and got ready to get going.
Someone like Max.
I jogged and walked the 5k to the best of my ability finishing in around 40 minutes (the timer from the 10k was still running so I don't have an accurate time) and I absolutely loved every minute of it, I will be signing up again next year - maybe even for the 10k. I am so proud of myself, of my friends, and of every single person who ran, jogged, and walked alongside me and in races up and down the country. There is still time to sponsor me for the event, you can do so at www.justgiving.com/jooleroo.
Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored and supported me. It means a lot.
