Pretty muddy adventures

This past month I have begun to love running again.  You don't begin to realise how much an injury really does take it out of you.  I finished June with a 5K colour run, I love colour runs as they are fun for everyone to join in and both girls had an amazing time too.  I then completed one of my favourite races to date, the Leeds 10K.  

I completed the 10K in a time of 1hr and 2 minutes, and whilst I would love to get a 10K under the 1hr mark I am still really proud of my achievement.  I have no photos to show of the day as my phone is broken, but it is the prettiest medal I own.

My running adventure continued today with my first every mud run.  I completed Race for Life Pretty Muddy with my amazing sponsor Brioche Pasquier.  Last year they raised £20,000 for Cancer Research UK through their Raise Some Dough promotion.  I was rather pleased to be given a Brioche Pasquier at the finish line

My friend took a photo for me as I am still without a phone.  To say I was pretty muddy would be an understatement.  Our shoes squelched with muddy water and the picture does not show the amount of mud in my hair or up my back, my friend was just as covered.  However it was such a fun race and would love to do it again!

I am continuing with my marathon training and running the 5K park runs on a Saturday.  I also have a Run or Dye event at the start of August which I am really looking forward to.  Other than that I decided to keep August free as it is the school holidays and so will fit my training around my girls.

Upon returning from my muddy adventures I came home to my two daughters who continued their adventures in the garden.  They decided that they wanted to be police officers and chase everyone around the garden.  They used their Little Tikes castle as their base to hide in and catch everyone with their water pistols

It has been such a fun day filled with mud and adventures
