I chuffing well did it!

56 minutes and 19 seconds - I did it! I did it!

I know it's daft, it's not a huge achievement, for a professional athlete 10k isn't very much - but I honestly wasn't sure I could do it. I have never ever run that far in my life before, so to do it was one thing, to do it under an hour was even better.

I feel well pleased. If a little stiff today.

Flatmates all did great times too. Beautiful day. Many attractive people panting through the park. People even chatting each other up during the race.

My god we were hungry after. Back to the flat and craving bacon sarnies. Mmmmmm.

Hooray us.

And on top of it, someone told me today that Fairbridge is actually a really good charity, so that annuls some of my Nike-guilt.
