10 km in Llandudno


Chris( centre) starting the race with 600 fellow health freaks

Chris at the half way point



We had no major mishaps.....a bit of pre run nerves and a quick wee in the back of the berlingo, and Chris was off with the best of them...As you can see the weather was not kind, but he managed the 10 km distance in a very respectable 1 hour 1 minute.

  10. You must be exhausted after all that picture taking. Hope Chris appreciated your physical effort and tucked you in with a book and a restorative toddy.

  11. Yay for Chris. However, now the Berlingo has dog snot and urine in it. I'm not cleaning that up. ;)

  12. I am so impressed! I didn't know that Chris was so athletic. It's so admirable, but now I must get back to my couch. Wouldn't want to strain a muscle or anything.

  15. Well done Chris, and it in all that rain too. It's been shovelling stair rods here all day.

  16. It was all I could do to get 50 yards across Tesco's car park in all that weather today.
    Hat off to Chris.

    How many cheese puffs?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well it was obviously worth all the effort you put in

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah Chris! Way to go and humma chucka!!! (that's a 'north end thing!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well done to C. He's clearly been bitten by the bug so get him to see today as a mere stepping stone - just a bit of training, if you will - for the biggie. Yes, the LONDON MARATHON, beckons!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow! What a supremo effort, and Chris did well too!

  21. Llandudno on a wet day is bad enough without having to run as well. Bravo for Chris!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well done Chris !
    And I thought he was just another pretty face :)

  23. That is a fantastic accomplishment. I was recently in Llandudno. Rather strange time, I had a police car behind me from Llandudno to Cardigan, a distance of some thirty miles.

    Peace and all the best

  26. Chris looks totally unfazed by his 10 kilometres. In fact he looks as if he could happily do another 10 kilometres without batting an eyelid.

  36. Nice to find your blog! This looks like Seattle and makes me want to go for a run in the rain....off I go!

    ReplyDelete
  37. And did you have to run alongside him, to take the photos?

  38. Congrats to Chris! By the way, last night I watched an episode of a series on French tv called "Vues du ciel" (views from the air). In this edition we got to fly over northern Wales. We saw Prestatyn (at which point I said to Ken: That's very close to Trelawnyd, where John Gray lives). Then we saw Llandudno, which shows up on your blog this very morning. Lots of nifty castles up there, too.
