We walked round to Dalton Cricket Club where the event was being held and I got the boys registered for the 1 mile fun run that was also on that evening. We got their and my numbers fixed to our shirts and headed out to the field to wait for the start.

Meanwhile, after I had set off through Dalton, the boys (accompanied by Andy) went to the start line for the 1 mile fun run. We had figured they would be doing a few laps round the cricket field but nope, off they went out into Dalton in a loop following where the 10k runners had gone. They both managed it really well, holding Andy's hands whilst running on the roads and didn't stop for the whole mile. Both boys received goody bags with t-shirts and sweets (always a good motivator!). I was a bit disappointed I couldn't see them running but our lovely Cheetah spectators took plenty of photos.
So very proud of all of us and had a brilliant evening. The marshals for the event were fantastic and considering my nerves beforehand I was extremely pleased with my result. There was a really great atmosphere and support for both events and I am hoping we'll all be back next year.
