7.5 k race tomorrow and I'm not excited at all


Obviously that's a big fat lie :D I'm SUPER excited! AAAAH!

I had signed up for this race together with my dad long before graduating (which was 3 months ago). The route is around the local river, a stunning scene! It's a night run and from what I've heard the atmosphere is always amazing!

There's no way I could have gotten this far without the c25k plan. Hard to believe that at the beginning of the year I found it a struggle to run for 5 mins.

Wish me luck everybody :D

Ooh good luck for tomorrow :) sounds like a really nice route, and very much looked forward to. Will you need a torch to see or will the track be lit up?

Thank you! :) It will be lit up. Although I kind of like the idea of having to run with a torch in complete darkness :D


Good luck! Sounds fantastic - I have never done a night run. What race are you doing?🙂

...lots of running in the dark with my trusty chest light, but never a proper event...

Thank you! :)

That sounds a terrific event and how lovely to run with your Dad!

Hope there is bling and if so we will need a piccie please😀🏃🏻‍♀️

Absolutely! He has been a runner for about 20 years so he's over the moon that he can finally share this with his daughter!

There's definitely going to be bling, wouldn't enter a race without it :D


good luck! have a fantastic time! :)

Thank you! I'm sure I will :)


Ooh, enjoy! It must be such fun to run with a family member. You are very lucky! Can't wait for your report!

MinimaxiGraduate10 in reply to JaySeeSkinny

I feel extremely lucky! :) Will definitely report back after.


Oh when I read that I was really hurt! My mouth went right down at the sides in a clown-like frown

So pleased you were having us on! I fell for it! Ha ha

Sooooooooooooo excited for you! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Has the faffing started? You gather your stuff together in one place. Well that's the plan but it all starts to unravel. Who ate my ruddy banana?

So, good luck for tomorrow. Your route sounds perfect. Have fun. I do hope bling is involved. If not, I hope the cakes make it all worthwhile. Bon voyage! And a "yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeha!"

Haha :D Sorry!

Everything is in place. Most importantly the snacks for afterwards. I have only just discovered Clif Bars :o Where have they been hiding all my life?

misswobbleGraduate10 in reply to Minimaxi

They are way dear though. I make my own. There is a fab power bar recipe on here. I just made a fresh batch. Now stashed under a big bag of spinach in the outside freezer 😃 they are only for longer runs and races, being heavy on calories.

Naked bars are good too if you don't bake your own. I make some raw ones too, chocchoc, fruity, espresso jobs 😜😋😛 No cooking needed ✔️


Good luck!
