My first 10km race!

My first 10km race!

It is a year since I started c25k as I wanted to actually run Race for Life for once but I got the bug and yesterday I ran my first ever 10km at Lee Valley with Women's Running Magazine. It was such a great experience and everyone was really friendly and I was worried they would be super fit super fast running mag buyers but they were normal people who like running just like me! I got a PB with 1hr 4min and came 150th out of about 250 so really chuffed!

I never thought I could run for 1 minute never mind over an hour! I have just keep going out running 3 times a week and it's amazing what you can achieve! Keep running everyone

    Keep running, keep smiling.

  • I booked the 10k RFL, which on my area is mid-June. I started c25k in January and am using b210k to increase my distance. Still only covering 7k, with 2 1-minute walks but I have faith.

    Well done, lovely achievement x
