Wee Scoops

Measure for Measure

The Finish Line

It was the 10K today. I made it to the finish line in 1 hour and 7 minutes, two minutes under my target, so that was great.


High point: when a woman with a megaphone, at about 6k, said to the running multitude, “If you run a wee bit faster, you might win!”

Low point: at the end, when some bright spark had decided to take down the big letters that you go to to meet up with people afterwards, so 14,000 women all dressed the same were stoating around in the wind and rain trying to find their pals.

Apart from that, it was great: a blur of pink, t-shirts; a series of funky rhythms from various drumming ensembles; an orange jelly-baby I’d have been better off without; leaden legs; gazelle-mode for the home straight and then the wind and rain kicked off.

So, that’s the finish of the running for a while.

Feet up.

  1. Oh well done! Many congratulations! I admire anyone who does something like this.

  2. That’s quite a daunting distance, my friend! Great going! 🙂

    • Thank you. So much of running is psychological. At the start of training, I thought I would collapse at 1k. But then one day… it’s all quite do-able.

  3. Congratulations, that is an impressive feat! I admire your courage and stamina, I hope that you and your feet are taking a well deserved rest today.
