Today was the day! Vårruset, my first race. I took it easy most of the afternoon to let my foot and joints rest.

I met up with my rheumatic friends before the race. Hubby joined me in order to look after our bags. My mother-in-law came too.

At 19.35, my group (the last of the 7 groups in the race) was signaled to go. It was quite crowded at the start but by the time we had reached the 1 km mark the road got wider and it was easier to walk.


At the 3 km mark my bad foot had started to hurt, at the 4 km mark my hip decided to join in the party… after 1 hour of walking we were finally at the goal line.

After everyone part of our group (we were 6 in total) had reached the finish line we started to eat of the picnic which is included in the price when signing up a group.

We had just finished our meal when the rain started so we took our things and walked back to the subway station.

Now I have a hurting foot and hip but I’ve enjoyed the evening anyway. Hopefully the two painkillers will make me sleep well tonight!

    Good on you for giving it a go, and even better, for making it to the end! Well done. 🙂

      Thanks! I’m very proud of myself! My hip still hurts but I’m sure it will be back to normal soon.
