Post 10k brunch and drinks - Sunday

Successfully completed my first ever run of any sort at the Leeds 10k in a decent enough time of 46.20 and came 427/9000 people (admittedly some of the 'larger' entrants were not much competition!!). Chef Jo and I then headed into Roundhay for brunch and the sunday paper.

This bit/ review is from Chef Jo...."Joe did the Jane Tomlinson Leeds 10k today, his first sponsored run.  It seemed appropriate to refuel properly afterwards, so we ventured to Pera in Roundhay. Pera is an Eastern Mediterranean restaurant on Street Lane.  It is open from 9am til late, and does brunches, lunch and tapas in the evenings.

We both made the slightly obscure choice of the vegetarian stack with sausages.  The stack was a breakfast muffin with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, hash browns and poaches eggs with a balsamic glaze.  It was really good, with perfect poached eggs (which is good for me as the only eggs I will eat are poached and must have runny yolks!).  We probably didn't need the sausages but they were a nice addition anyway.

Afterwards we headed over the road to the Deer Park to read the papers and have a celebratory bloody mary - Joe did the 10k in 46 minutes do I'm very proud!

Trying my top on for size - no safety pins so put badges in good use!

I did my usual trick of forgetting to take a picture before I dig into the food - very good it was too.
Hash browns that they forgot to serve, which came half way through eating!

Excellent Bloody Mary from the Deer Park
