Cross Country At Berry Hill Park, Mansfield, Nottingham

Cross Country At Berry Hill Park, Mansfield, Nottingham. Hello friends.

Over the last few weeks, me and my youngest children have been enjoying being part of a running club.

I used to be part of a running club years ago and loved it but my youngest children had never been a part of one before. 

We have been doing lots of training and racing; well the kids have!! I just wish I was a lot fitter. If it wasn’t for my love of cakes!!

Last week they both ran cross country for their schools. It was so cold I did not envy them racing.

Well maybe a little but not in vest and shorts, it was freezing!! I got so wrapped up, I hate being cold.

Me and mini me before her race!! Looking all fresh and ready to race. I would want to keep my coat on, it is cold, brr.

It was so cold and frosty!! Frost and sunshine is OK but so so cold in the shade!

And the girl’s race. Off they go.

They both did great and are improving week by week. I am so proud of them both. Not a day goes by where they don’t run.

They are doing a runstreak and doing a great job. They even ran in the pouring rain the other day throughout a park that way flooding with all the rain.

Now I am officially the slowest runner in the house 😕. Best up my game!!

I would love to get fit for next year. Maybe then I will be joining them for cross country races.

Then again, maybe not!! I have been saying this for years now.

Linking up our Cross Country fun over at Coombe Mill.
