Well this was my first company race since working at Symantec,  It was something I really didnt know what to expect and due to being in marathon training again and my religious morning run’s ran 8 miles that morning.  The race was made upto a marathon distance and ideally 10 in a team…

As expected we experienced some drop outs, therefore I ended up doing 2 legs which was around 5.2 miles in just over 29 minutes. Pleased with considering the terrible conditions of  a downpour, slippery street tiles and mixed muddy terrain.

Elated to win as the fastest lady in 14.18 for my first lap and also as a team we finished 2nd overall and 1st in the IT category.  Proud to be part of the team and also the only lady to thrash the men :-).  Well done Team BMC!
