Nearly time for first 10k race

Hello all

I am just here to say that I am getting quite excited for my first race and my first race is a 10k. Who would have thought it 7 months ago. I started this programme back in September hoping that I would enjoy this running malarkey. Never in a million years did I think 7 months on I would be running a 10k race.

I dont think that I would have got as far as I have if I didnt have the support of all of you. So thank you all for your advice and help.

I went out running last Saturday with a running partner. First time in 7 months that I have run with anyone. Really enjoyed the company and his encouragement to keep me going. Also manage my first 10k run ever. Was well impressed to have done it in 1 hour 9 mins.

So next sunday 6th april I will be running at 8.30 in the morning. I am so looking forward to it. I have also managed to raise £500+ for great ormond street hospital.

Happy running everyone x

  • Snap!I have my first race on Sunday in fact ive never raced in my life and im 62 this june and its also a 10k and I am so looking forward to it. I'm running in the Wakefield hospice race but only raised 150 quid so not as well as you but its 150 quid they wouldn't have had so never mind. Good luck for your race . mine starts at 9am so you'll be on your way to the finish so enjoy, I know I'm going to.
