Nike Women’s 10k #weownthenight

If you follow me on Instagram, you will already know, last night i ran the Nike We Own The Night Women’s 10k. It was my first ever 10k race and IT. WAS. AMAZING. The race took place in Victoria Park, East London, the atmosphere was buzzing, the music was great and there was lots going on. It felt a bit like being at LoveBox (minus the alcohol)!

The girls running were all so inspiring, if at any point i felt like i was flagging, i’d just look around and the energy would spur me on. Not even the rain was stopping us!

Make Up & Nails/: I had to keep make up minimal for the run, i would be sweating and i didn’t want it all running along my face (excuse the pun). The sweaty make up look is not one many can pull off! I wore a tinted moisturiser with SPF, covered my lips with Vaseline and lined my eyes with Benefit’s BadGAL Liner which is amazing – its super black and waterproof so was perfect for therun. I finished off the look with the They’re Real Mascara, also from Benefit.

I painted a little Nike Swoosh logo on one of my nails too to help prepare for the race.

We found our names on this super cool Nike cube, which listed the names of all the runners!!

It was amazing to see friends and family at the end of the race THANK YOU guys /: Julie, Renee,  my sisters and nephew. Once i got past the finish line and over the emotion of it all, it was time to have some fun. The Elle tent was the first place to head to. With mirrors, hair products, cleansers etc, it was a god send.

I was super pleased with my race time. I was aiming for under an hour so managed to make it. It was definitely a challenge, but i am looking forward to the next one!

A HUGE thanks to Gcooler for some amazing pictures taken on the day. It’s always good to have your own dedicated pap! Check out his instagram for some super cool pix.
