On New Year's Eve, carried away by alcohol and my competitive streak I rashly countered my kids' New Year resolutions by declaring that I intended to run a 10K race in 2014.
In the cold light of day I presumed everyone had forgotten but alas no: this morning my son e-mailed with details of the Leeds 10K in July and challenged me to keep my word. Ten minutes later against all my instincts, I found myself clicking ENTER on the Leeds website and it appears I am now committed. As my aged legs currently struggle to run 5K in less than 40 minutes I know I have a steep training curve in front of me. Any advice or news of fellow entrants would be very welcome.
