Wow!!! was it worth the wait in the airport 🤔most definitely.👍👍 I absolutely loved this race❤️ attending with friend on her birthday🎂. Beat the Bridges.🌉 There were 11,434 attended. It started packed like sardines in the metro🚇. I couldn't believe the size of the event for a winter evening in Rotterdam🇳🇱.The atmosphere was electric starting with techno blasting. 🎉🎉🎉We were given green light up arm bands to wear so we were like a long Xmas ribbon as we ran🏃‍♀️. As we started running I wanted to take photos as it's a magical place and beautiful along the water with the city lit up and of course the stunning bridges. I didn't as I had worked hard for this race🏁. My friends took photos m. Now I thought it was going to be flat but there was quite an incline on the bridges. I was encouraged by so many local runners supporting me up the hills. At one point runner's made a chain and put arms around me to give me the boost. 👐People were lovely😊 on the whole very flat compared to UK. The streets were lined with spectators and different types of music🎶 played along the route. We could see runner's below from on top of the bridge it was an amazing sight. The last mile was hard as I was giving everything I had in the tank. Runner's continued to talk and encourage me. I achieved my best time of the year💪🎉🎉🎉. 🎊 The finish was all lit up. I crossed as the heavens opened we got drenched🌧️ We soon had dry clothes from our bags Which we got wet and cold again heading to my friends home🥶. But when we got back. I recieved another warm welcome from the family. Hot coffee☕ and fabulous food prepared by the family 🍲 This was an amazing adventure I will never forget. I have been totally spoilt and have enjoyed every minute. I'm feeling a little emotional as I'm heading back to the UK tommorow and I have had so much fun. 😀Thank you so much to the people of the Netherlands 🙏

Great distance to finish of my season.
