Pick Your Finish Line Celebration
Hugs All Round
When you cross the finish line your first stop is to find the nearest human being and envelope them in a sweaty hug. A little tear might escape your eye. You’re a softie, one of life’s touchy feely folks and all you want to do is share your emotions with your fellow runner. You’d probably sacrifice your time to help someone else finish the race and you’re not that fussed about medals and selfies. You’re here for the experience and boy will you squeeze every second out of it.
No celebrations here, you mean business. The first thing you do when you cross the finish line is hit stop on your watch and feast on all of your data. Those splits won’t study themselves. You came here to crush your 10k PB and you won’t let anything get in your way. There’ll be no small talk at the halfway point or high-fiving spectators but we respect your single-mindedness. You earned that medal every single kudos on Strava.
Hell Yeah Fist Pump
You might have celebrated the whole way round, high-fived every supporter and marvelled at all of the sights but the finish line is where you really come into your own. Fist pumps, clapping, high-fives, you will let loose the second your toe sneaks over that line. And you deserve it. Maybe this is your first ever 10k, or perhaps you just really, really love running. Either way your joy is infectious and everyone around you will be fist pumping too.
It took 10 long kilometres but you’ve finally crossed the finish line. Look up to the sky, let out a shout and revel in the fact it’s over. You thank the running gods that you’re still in one piece and gratefully accept your medal. This wasn’t your first rodeo and it won’t be your last. It’s time for a serious warm down, a nutritious meal and to start planning your next race.
