Glow in the dark

While most people are thinking about the London Marathon this weekend my thoughts were on the much shorter 5k Glow in the Dark run on Saturday night.
The idea was to have a fun run round the nice flat Dorney Lake in Windsor and help my friend Nikki run her first 5k.  We took it steady, enjoyed the music and had some fun.  Everyone had dressed up with glow sticks and flashing lights so following the route was easy.  We came in at 39:03 which for a first time 5k was pretty good.
It was a nice little run.  We were set off in waves so there was no hanging around as there was a new wave every 5 mins or so.  No queue for the loos and a special tent with UV lights so you could take photos all glowing.  The perfect sort of run for a beginner.
(and the medal glows in the dark!  What more could you want!?)
