To everyone who has already sponsored me for last Sunday's Lincoln10k: a BIG THANK YOU. If you haven't and you want to, there is still time. Just click here.
In the meantime, I promised you photos. The Mrs Slocombe Academy for Young Ladies turned out in force. Naturally, we hurt the eyes of everyone who looked at us.
There was a small panic on Friday, when I realised I couldn't find my race number. I phoned the council and they sorted me out with a backup one, which I collected during the morning before the race. Dorothy sorted us out with pink gym-bloomers - Mrs S would be proud.
Once the signal blew, it took us about 10 minutes to cross the starting line. All the walkers were in the slowest group, at the back.
I must say, the staff in the hotel didn't bat an eyelash when we staggered into the bar dressed like that and ordered a victory round. At that point, I had a Gin and Tonic in my sights and wasn't stopping for anyone.
We had a great time. Thank you Lincoln, and thank you to everyone who has sponsored us.
