I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just a quick post, as I'm shattered and just heading for the bath!
I completed the great North run, in just under 3 hours, we had a few p breaks, so we probably ran for about 2:40, so I'm thrilled!!!!!!
The day has been very emotional, particularly as we crossed the start line and the red arrows flew over head:-)The first 8 miles went by quite quickly, and I thought that the whole 13 miles wasn't going to be too much trouble, but have to admit, the last few miles got harder, and the final mile seemed like the first 4 of the race! But we did it, and I feel very proud of us both!
I'll be drawing the raffle tomorrow, so will be back then with prize winners, and to let you all know how much I raised:-)

Well done hun! What a great, inspirational post. You should be so proud of yourself - like Noo, I'm really proud of you especially when I saw the course on TV and how much it is uphill.

Well done there you both - I didn't realise you were training right along side of me! I ran the New Forest half marathon in 2hrs38mins (we were 'chipped'!) on September 16th and so I reckon I know exactly how you felt at the end!
So - what's the next challenge???
