The Coltishall Mike Groves 10 mile road race is my highlight of 2015 so far !!
A distance I thought I would never achieve after my 3rd achilles injury.
Meeting up with Gina and Linda calmed my nerves a little as it was so lovely to see them and have a good chat before the start.
The weather was perfect for running although the thunder storms from the night before had flooded some of the roads, which would mean wet feet and some plonker had stolen the water for the water stations, but luckily I had my own drink to carry.
The marshalls at all the junctions and turns were really encouraging and very friendly, soon I totally relaxed and just enjoyed the route, which was an out and back one, close to the start we went down a hill so I knew at around mile 9 there would be an uphill stretch.
I loved this run for many reasons and finished in 1 hr 40, 5 mins faster than I had expected so was very pleased with myself 🙂
Great coffee and cake supplied by the Coltishall Ladies was enjoyed after the run, before Gina Geoff and I went for lunch at the Bike themed
