Another forumite partaking in a Mo Run here!
This was my first ever 10k event and it went really well. The event itself was great with loads of people in some brilliant fancy dress outfits all running for a good cause. Unfortunately the weather wasn't so brilliant with torrential rain and freezing cold temperatures but once you get going you don't notice.
My mum and son did the 5k together (both did fantastically well). I'm hoping that he'll get the running bug and start coming out with me more often.
Time wise I was 3 seconds off my target time but goddammit I had just run 10k when I struggled to run for 60 seconds only six months ago Apologies for the blurry photo but I had to include an action shot of some sort!! And it doesn't matter where I run I always manage to end up running in a big space by myself ... perhaps the other runners are trying to tell me something
For anyone looking for an event to run in I can strongly recommend these for next year. This one was a really good balance of aptitude and a really nice vibe about it (even with awful weather). There was a decent number of people there to create an atmosphere but not too many that it felt crowded all the way round (some places at the start were a bit of a squeeze).
And for clarification the two cold men were my husband and dad who came along to cheer us on
So now it's a case of drying the trainers out and then onto the HM training plan
