Photo Session #15 - Reading Half Marathon & wonderful News

Well, let's start with the hard work before moving on to some wonderful news (lol). Last year in September two friends and myself had the idea of taking part in the Reading Half Marathon .... but not to run it but to walk it! We trained, we talked and planned. We worked out that we would have 10 minutes for 1km in order to arrive at the finish before the cut-off time .... and today was THE day: 13 miles (21km) walking ... it was hard it was faster than we ever thought we would be ... Carlos was the pacemaker and he is FAST. We did it in: around 03 hrs and 22 minutes .... yippeehhhh we made and got a medal! And here are some photos - courtesy of Carlos
the three of us at mile 8: Carlos - me - Veronica
 with wonderful supporters all along the way
... and here is the finish .... yipppeehhhh
And now to some wonderful and totally unexpected news: I made the top three of the Craft Stamper Magazine 'Take it Make it Challenge 7' with one of my Black&White cards .... what a lovely surprise, I am truly chuffed (BIG SMILE).
Have a lovely week, Petra. x
