Not been back long and I thought it appropriate that my first post should be a quote from the letter I received from Walter Hill (men's team coach) before he left Keswick. I hope he doesn't mind, I don't think he will.
"Sorry that I had to go
first England vest
first English runner
fifth in the Commonwealth
silver team led in by you
An outstanding achievement [and a new personal best]
What more could we ask for"
When I read the above on Saturday night I almost burst into tears. Up until that point everything had still been a bit of a blur and it none of what happened in the race had sunk in really.
Thank you Walter for making me aware of my achievements.
