Just ran 1st 10 k race today at Strathclyde Country Park in - drum role please - 1 hr 8 min 33secs!!! Cannot believe time. Fastest in practise was 1 hr 24 so over the moon. I am well chuffed. Plan was to start of with slowest pacer sub70 and drop back quite soon but I managed to stick right beside her all the way. Was quite hot and sunny but I really enjoyed the run. Struggled with last k but stubbornness kicked in and managed to get in front of pacer - can't print what was going through my head when pacer shouted words of encouragement at this point ie Sprint Rona you can do it. I'll sprint her but I got there Had a fabulous morning and to top it all the small t shirt at end fits me . Sorry for ramble but can you tell I'm a wee bit excited. Good luck for everyone doing GNR tomorrow.
