Happy Monday everyone, hope you all enjoyed the weekend and especially the sunshine yesterday!
I wanted to write a review on here today of the Norwich Steeplechase which Jenny Henry and I took part in on Saturday 5th March at Blackwater Farm near Lenwade!
We arrived early and it was absolutely freezing, driving wind and rain made the conditions truly awful!
I was lucky enough to also have an Adrenalize stand at this event and the lovely Georgina Loomes and Emma Parr were doing some boxing demos for me! We were able to set up the stand inside the registration tent so at least we were sheltered from the elements!
George and Emma did an amazing job and created lots of interest whilst doing the boxing demos, thanks so much ladies - you were bloody fantastic!
So the time approached for me and Jenny to race and we were not relishing the prospect of having to wade through various river crossings... But after the warm up we were off!!
The route was really tough, the ground was like running in quick sand and the water was so cold! But the event was organised brilliantly and we had a few fun aspects thrown in like a heavy sand bag carry up a steep hill whilst getting over fences and a fun egg and spoon race!!
We completed the 5km course in 42 minutes which considering the conditions, we were damn pleased with and the sense of achievement when crossing the finish line was bloody superb!!
So overall a really enjoyable event and I'm already looking forward to the October event where I will be entering an Adrenalize team - comment below if you're up for the challenge!!
Thanks for being the perfect running partner Jenny - now we look forwards to Only the Brave - 5 miles this weekend at Thetford!! Fingers crossed for better weather!!
Have a great week everyone,
