Bath half 7th march

I had talked 10 people at work to enter the bath half as a team in the corporate challenge!! Some were experienced runners some had never run before!
Day started early and we all piled on the minibus! We got tho Bath early and were waiting in the runners village for an eternity and it was horribly cold!!
Finally we were on the start line, Wendy and I sneaked in with the green numbers even though we were orange and off we went!!
I ran with Barry who with his bad archilles problem for first 5 miles and then abandoned him again just like i did in hestercombe 
The first 10 k was extremely fast 55 mins and at about 6 miles my foot started to hurt! Almost felt like shoe laces were too tight!
I kept going running through the pain and there at last was the finish line. My garmin time was 1.59.07 but the official chip time was 1.59.18 think I'll stick with garmin!!
It took a lot time to get from finish line to runners village and it was freezing!! Foil blankets should have been given out lot earlier!
We finished the day with a team burger!
Our team came 6th out of over 46 teams and we raised over £2000 for our 3 nominated charities included make a wish!!
Well done team!!! I did push myself hard through that race and hurt my foot and 2 days later I have a bruise all the wAy down outside of my thigh!!! Strange!!!
