I really pushed hard on this race to beat my half marathon PB.  I nearly didn’t make it, at 18km I was feeling a little dizzy and emotional. My running buddy, she just encouraged me to push through and to get to the time I wanted. On the steep uphill on 10km she pushed me up the hill. I don’t think I would have made it so far if I didn’t have her running by my side. I didn’t like that there wasn’t toilet facilities at all the water spots, and having to run on gravel road some of the race wasn’t great.

My kids did the 5km race and it was all on a dirt road and they ran in mud etc, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. (I won’t let me kids do this race again.)

But the end of the day, I did my PB and I finished the race.
