I did it!

My first 5k race. A very decent(for me) timing of 40:44 minutes when I had never cracked it beneath 45 minutes before. Just as well because of a 1200, I was only faster than 30 of them. It was a night run and I LOVED every minute of it. The noise, the crowd, the music. I am now thinking of signing up for a 4EM race on the 26th of next month. Hmm..this is addictive isn't it?

Well done, great effort.

It is amazing how running with others almost magically allows you to run faster than you think you are running.

Very addictive! That's a great run and a major time Improvement. Well done! When is the next one?
