That's us grinning at the end of the run.

We finished the 10km in 1hr 8mins 51sec. The weather was fantastic - it's amazing how little you sweat - and we just kept on trudging along. The sun was pretty bright though - not used to it as I always run in the evenings here. They had pails and pails of water which they filled up with long green hoses. People were throwing water over their heads as they ran, and if you stood too close, you would get showered on too. After the run, we collected our medal, our orange finisher's T-shirt, a bananna, and went and joined a "cool-down" class. It was a carnival :)
