My sister came across this photo of me running in an organised race many years ago!!
I’ve only ever run in 2 races in my life and I’m not even sure which one it is!!
I ran in the Belfast women’s mini marathon 10 K in 1983! My older brother was really into running at that time and he got me into it! I remember going out on training runs with him and he’d go off ahead!! I remember the race vaguely! I had a wee sprint at the end and apparently did it in 54 minutes!! (He told me recently! All I could remember was that I’d run a race in Belfast and got a medal!! A photo of me wearing it exists but we can’t find it!! ) I have the medal though! Very non bling like compared to today’s medals!!
The other race was The Sunday Times fun run in Hyde Park! (I was nurse training then)I think that’s the photo! I remember doing it but no details at all!! Back then I wasn’t interested in times or pace!! Anyway I didn’t run again for another 30 years or so!!! Enjoying it much more now I’m happy to say!! 😀
