...OK I think this photo will need some explaining.
When I started C25K in April 13 a lot of my friends took the mick and said that running isn't a real sport but they saw the positive effect it had on me and their opinion changed. I managed to convince one of them to start C25K but I had to motivate him to start. Knowing he is very competitive I challenged him to a 1km sprint when he graduated, where I would run the 1km and he would relay it with someone else and do 500m each. So to make sure they don't cheat I have these home made batons created out of copper pipes with duct tape at the ends. They have insisted that I run with a baton too! I am hoping for a 3:30 km which is very optimistic but I'm going to give it a good go. We are racing on Wednesday so I will let you guys know how it goes!
