I have a few thank yous I need to say.
Firstly, to my training buddy @weesmileyrunner !
If it wasnt for her, dragging me round the trails of Luton and Dunstable, I don't think I would have made the start line. She made me truly believe I could actually do this, and her patience while I had my meltdowns was incredible. She is an amazing lady and I'm so lucky to call her my friend 💜
Then goes on to the amazing crew team, the wonderful @celtic.spark and @grahamthedoneinrunner .
Without them, I wouldnt have got the additional supplies along route or the knowledge I needed to get me to that finish 👧👦
My little Stones trio @mrs_led04 and @runaroundkat !
We were off to a great start, weather was perfect, we felt strong. Sadly, Vicky took a pretty bad tumble at 7km. It shook her up so we took it slower and just needed to get her to pit stop 1 for medical attention. We powered on, but the pain got too much for her and she made the super tough decision to drop out at 21km 😥
The trio became a duo. We put all our heart and soul in to those next 30km and without Kat I think the mental challenge would have won, she kept me sane and focused on the prize 👸👸🏼👸
Finally but certainly not least, my amazing fiancé @chubs2ridgewaylife
He messaged me every few km cheering me on, despite being on his own challenge for 100km. To my surprise, he was at the finish line waiting for me, I cried like a bloody baby when he put that medal around my neck but I couldnt imagine anyone else handing me that medal. It meant so much to me that he was there to see me finish 😘
#thankyou to all of you amazing people 🥰🥰🥰 .
