Great race report Ags and brill pics Pans. Fantastic weekend and a very humbling and enjoyable experience for us all. Puts so much into perspective. Yes would definitely do another one and hopefully with all my motle crew again, :lol: who gave me such fun and support throughout all our training and particularly on the race day itself. Smiled all the way.
Brilliant time. Now to arrange the next one, :lol:
Rocking Roll in April sounds good, plenty time for training.

Tilly :D

Had a great time reading this thread - well done to all of you, I so admire you all. What a fantastic amount you raised! I watched every minute of it on TV to try and catch you Ags but there were too many blonde babes. I have to say I practically gret (greeted???)through the whole thing as the stories were so humbling and I'm sorry I didn't get there as I had planned, to watch you all. Fabulous pictures and it looked like you all had a brilliant time. Well, well done to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Thanks girls and also GG and Numberplease for your lovely comments and emails and a huge thanks GG for the VERY generous sponsor! Also thanks for adding the pics Gail.
Will you look at the state of me in the breakfast photograph. I look absolutely shattered! It was nothing to do with the running or the fizzy bubbles at the apres run party! I blame sharing a room with Lady J. She had us in fits of hysteria both nights and on Monday morning when we could have been having a wee bit of a long lie it was like somebody pressed her "on" button at 7am and she was off again :lol: Great laughs and like you have all said memories to last a life time!! AND......I wasn't overtaken by a chocolate cake :lol: I was just looking back, it took me nearly 3 years to get back into my running after that trauma in Dublin!!
Rock n Roll Half Marathon then girls?? I'm up for it. Bags me and Gail share with Lady J again......the lack of sleep was worth it :D

Brilliant pics girls, nice to put faces to names at last. As well as doing a wonderful thing, bit looks like a fantastic time was had by all. I haven`t sponsored you yet, because I mislaid my credit card, (shows how often I use it!), but it turned up when I was packing the other day, so I will be contributing.
