26.28 miles in 3 hours 5 minutes. It was pouring rain the whole time. I would get jelly legs every now and again making it difficult to skate properly. The first 5 miles were horrible, I couldn’t see myself finishing it. But then Andrea, Ruth and I stuck together sticking to a pace we knew we could manage. We sang Disney songs, shared strawberry laces and energy gel packets and made sure no one quit. There was a killer hill that we tackled by screaming the whole way up. We even did a short video at mile 15 which we uploaded to the NRG page whilst skating because we’re skilled like that. We definitely weren’t the fastest but we completed it and I’m pretty damn happy about that. It was awesome crossing the finishing line together knowing we’d stuck together the whole time. We’ve been able to raise £1,270 so far for Inspire Nottingham which we’re really pleased about. It’s not too late to donate, so if you’d like to then please do: www.justgiving.com/nottinghamrollergirls
Over and out.
