Did race for life yesterday and was really chuffed to get round the course in 37mins which is the best I've done so far at a 5k. (my gps thing said it was only 4.8kms but I still felt good) Thanks to all you guys who gave me advice for running in hot weather - as it turned out it wasn't as hot as I thought it would be so I coped fine without the hat and glasses.
I found it quite tough running alongside other people though. Not only because some were repeatedly zooming past me then stopping right in my path to walk ( ) but because whenever anyone stopped near me, I had a really strong compulsion to stop with them and walk.
It was a great event and I was really thrilled to have achieved my (first) goal which was to be able to run this year's race for life!
