Im in that crowd somewhere! On Sunday i ran the Great Scottish Run 10K In Glasgow and achieved a PB! 10K (6.2miles) in 1 hour 1minute and 59 seconds. Im very proud of myself!
Im pretty sure i would've broken the hour had i not been stuck in this crowd heading up St Vincents Street in Glasgow City Centre. I just couldnt get going and i think that cost me a few minutes!
Here i am at the finish! Number 5936, hands on hips, blue tshirt. Ignore the clock, the start is staggered so we dont all start at 0. 8000 people starting all at once would be slightly chaotic! There was a chip on the back of my number which gave me my actual my time.
My dad took me up to the city centre, waved me off and waited for me at the end. I loved the morning and the slogan of the race was very apt; Start with courage, Finish with Pride.
