Dark Star 7

A few months ago I apparently lost my mind and agreed to run a 7k in May. Two days ago I ran that 7k.

Well, I say "ran", actually I alternated between running and walking because there was no way I was going to be able to keep up a running pace the whole way, unlike Paul who zoomed off ahead of me after about five minutes. But the important thing is that I did it and I did not die.

My time was 59:47 and I'm feeling pretty proud of myself that I made it in under an hour, even if I was one of the last ones to finish. And there was beer at the end, which was the main reason I agreed to this madness in the first place...


Me with beer. And appropriate t-shirt that I got in Halifax.

Following this we got the bus to Brighton, played a few games in the amusement arcade on the pier, and had dinner. I felt pretty tired but otherwise ok and it wasn't until the evening the next day that the aches and pains from the run made themselves known. I'm still a little stiff today, so I'm very glad that I took this week off work.

We also made progress on our planning for our next holiday and not only have an itinerary for Wales but have already booked all our hotels. It's almost unheard of for us to move this quickly! Usually I spend ages researching and planning! I'm not sure if this bodes well or not...
