GEAR 10K 06/05/2018
On what felt like the hottest day of the year so far it was time to run my first 10k in orange. I was one of 16 Jags running the Kings Lynn GEAR and was made to feel very welcome even though I’m an unfamiliar face and still a bit of a newcomer.
I’d love to say I enjoyed it…well I did until 7km when a combination of heat and self doubt kicked in. The flat route itself was lovely with a mixture of paths through the park, roads and a narrow pathway along the water, hearing shouts of ‘go jags’ from marshals, spectators and fellow runners gave me the push I needed to get to the end. The occasional areas of shade and water stops were much appreciated, even if only to tip the water over our heads in an attempt to try and cool down!!!!
Well done to all my fellow runners and amazing achievement to those that got a PB in the heat. I’ll definitely be back next year for a PB
