I haven't graduated yet (just about to start week 8) but I'm itching to have a race because I get lonely running on my own all the time. I can't run 5k yet but a local running club are hosting a Hairy Helmet Relay on 15th June (I think it's a real ale). The race is 4 x 2 and a bit miles, apparently, and I really want to do it. I think I can find 3 friends to go with me, if only for the beer and barbecue afterwards, but I'm nervous because the course has a huge long hill at the start and I always run on the flat.
I suppose I just need some encouragement from you lot to have a go. What do you think?
