This morning Jeanette and I participated in the Spars Women’s Race – I did the 5km and Jeanette did the 10km. Jeanette has been a member of Run/Walk for Life since the beginning of the year, increasing her distances gradually and doing extremely well, I must say!! I am very proud of you my girl 🙂 Her goal being the half marathon at the Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town next year, Easter weekend.
Me ? I do the 5 km Delta parkrun most Saturdays … walking most the way and jogging down hills (if my piriformis syndrome can take the pressure!!!!) On average I do it in 48 mins (my PB is 45:15)
When Jeanette suggested I join her for the Spars Women’s Race I jumped to the idea 🙂 It would be a breeze .. it’s on the road all the way. No negotiating wonky paths and stones and skipping around doggies and leads!!!! It was great fun!! Packed to capacity with thousands of runners/walkers. Some men too, in fact quite a lot of men! They were all supposed to be dressed as women! Majority were, some weren’t.
I took my little camera with me to take piccies along the way. An Instagram photo(which is in the side bar of my blog, and which I don’t know how to transfer from phone to blog !!!) … was taken by Jeanette’s friend before the race —–>
My time was roughly 54:36 and Jeanette’s was 1hr 10min .. cutting off at least 5 minutes from those times because of the hold-up at the start
A sea of people in front and behind … this is all the 5 km race. 10km race took a different route
My time …
Here comes Jeanette (in the yellow top)…
My first medal!!! Whoo hooo !
It was super !!!! When is the next one ? !!! 😉
