YAY!!! This year I did it.
As for Thoresby 10k, we went up the night before and spent some time with Dad and his lady friend, went to the Double Barrel for a steak as big as your face and stayed in the same hotel.
We drove down in tandem – dad followed us as we were heading straight home and he was going to lunch somewhere else. Mikes parents also came so we had a proper family gathering.
The Longhorn is Thoresby 10 backwards (or is it the other way around?). Either way it was great, it felt very different and I think I prefer it the Thoresby way. I saw Caroline (who beat me last time) who was marshalling – was fab to run by and hear her cheering on.
Approaching the finish line with the family there was brilliant.
Collected my medal AND a trophy for coming first in category 🙂
Gun time 51.50. Chip Time 51.38. Overall 39/308. Female 9/209. Category F50 1/17.
