I actually did it!….. I managed to run the Lichfield 10k, finishing in 1 hour and 4 minutes. The course is a very hilly one, with a killer of a hill at 6k, but I set off at a steady pace and kept that speed up for the whole race. I felt pretty good throughout and even had enough left at the end to put on a turn of speed toward the finishing line.
There is a more detailed report of the day on my website, along with more photos (not all very complimentary….!)
I would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who sponsored me and helped me raise over £350 for Tiggiwinkles WIldlife Hospital. I know the money will be well spent there and I feel touched by all the kind donations, especially from people who only know me through my WildlifeKate website. There is still time to donate and make my run even more worthwhile at www.justgiving.com/wildlifekate
