Run to the Hills

First post for a while. Just wanted to say that I managed a milestone for me, and one that I had hoped to achieve when I started c25k last September. That was running in a local race that is always on during our 'gala week'. The race is just under 10k but takes a fairly brutal route into the hills with some seriously steep bits. My aim was just to complete it without stopping running. It was tough going but I did it in about 55 minute. I was impressed by the fitness of some of the older participants who finished miles ahead of me!

That is seriously fast for that distance and hills thrown in too, well done you. And don't stay away so long in future, I need to know what your secret is in how to conquer hills they are my nightmare and always have been.
