I graduated from Couch to 5K back in May, and I have just taken part in my first proper event. It was the Aspipre Warmley Sunset 5K, a lovely cross country event with around 200 runners. The weather was perfect, a warm sunny evening with a beutiful sunset and hot air balloons drifting overhead. The atmosphere was great and the course challenging and varied - across fields, woodland trails, tarmac paths and scrubland.
I managed to run the whole way, and I am rather pleased with myself - I came in 97th with a time of 31mins 35 seconds, and got my first event medal! Chuffed to bits!
Now to aim for 10K!!
