I am so pleased with my race and proud of the fact that I was able to achieve what I set out to do!

Congratulations to my very good friend Andy Cole who won my ‘Guess My Time’ competition. I am so pleased for him as Andy helped me so much in preparing for this race from advice to showing me the course over several weekend recce runs.

A few photos for now …


Photo taken about an hour after the finish. Tired but very happy!
