My chip tile didn’t quite come out right and I don’t know why. It said 00:29 for a 10 mile run! If I did that then I must be world class and I’m surprised I’m not on the news yet! Advice: Get there early to participate in the warm up!

I was first in my category and I didn’t get my special medal. Quite frustrated and upsetting for my age.

I arrived the first and still I am not getting the first medal- you need to have a different strategy with the organisers.
