We were up at 6am on a Sunday morning !!!!! Well, technically the alarm went off at 6am but we were’t up then. However, we were out the house and in the car by 7:30 which is a great achievement but we were well motivated to go and cheer Abi (my sister) on who was running the Chichester Priory 10k. I ate lots of watermelon in the car on the way there.
Here is part of Abi’s fan club; my sister Holly and her husband Richard, Lara and Harvey. There she goes, looking very fresh near the start. Still looking good at at the 9.5 k point.Yippee !!!! She did it and in a very good time.
Well done Abi. It was quite exhausting encouraging all those runners and as soon as it was over we headed in to the centre of Chichester to this old building which used to be the butter market. Today it is the home of ‘Bill’s’ and our destination of choice for a huge post race brunch. What a great choice for breakfast. Soy milk latte. Then Bill’s vegetarian breakfast, minus the eggs and plus the baked beans and potato. This consisted of toast with guacamole and toast with humous. It was very good. Best of all was the delightful company and the lovely building we enjoyed being in for a considerable amount of time. Well done Bill’s of Chichester for a great breakfast and well done Abi for completing your first road race in a great time. Apart from 2 apples that was all I ate today until the evening when Marion and Sarah came round for wine and snacks.
I remained true to my vegan lifestyle but not the whole food and plant food goals; peanuts, Bombay mix and wine do not count as healthy! The humous and raw veggies were good.
It was a lovely sociable day though 🙂
