Look what has arrived!

Look what has arrived!

My number for the Wirral 10km has arrived! All beginning to be a lot more real!

My hopes for the race:

First to complete it

Second not be last

Third if I do complete do so in around 1:20 :)

Fourth to run as much as I can but be realistic

Fifth to enjoy it as much as I can :)

Thank you all, I don't think I would have kept up my running without reading your posts. Knowing others have the same bad days, the same fears and the same joys :)

Happy running :)
