I’d spent the week leading up to an off-road 10k ill in bed. Maybe the rest did me good, because I rocked up and won it, my first ever win!
Changing in the car, I’d decided to pop back to the finish line to get a piece of orange before heading home. As I did so, they announced the winners and I heard second place being called up with a slower time than mine – I was totally shocked! My name was indeed announced as first place and I whooped and collected my voucher. A tiny air punch may have slipped out.
