The run went great, but my god it was SO hot! I finished in 2:42, nowhere near my planned timed but in 27 degree heat I was pleased to finish! My dad met me at mile 8 for moral support and ended up running the last 5 miles with me to keep me going, people were cheering us on and laughing hysterically! Bare in mind he is 57!!
It was an amazing day and the atmosphere was fantastic, on the hottest day of the year! I ran for my step brother Ally, who passed away last July. It was a tremendous achievement for me, as my first ever run, considering I couldn’t even a mile back in October (the honest truth!)
