I knew Sonia was keen to do it too; and our birthdays are a month apart, so what better way than to celebrate together!
We set off at 1.45 on a Saturday afternoon (tough time to run, most of my runs are evenings and some mornings, never straight after lunch!
|All set to go!|
It was a really tough first third. Straight up hill. You can see from the profile! We ran when we had the energy, and walked when we didn't. Everything in my legs was burning at this stage!
|If you smile, you can't feel the pain..|
Near the top it was much more enjoyable, a bit more level with only slight up and downhills. We both felt like we were flying after enduring the slow uphills!

Then all of a sudden we were done! Back to the car and off to the cafe to enjoy a coffee.
