so nervous

My first race in 2 hours!!!!!!!!! I'm doing race for life and I'm feeling very anxious. Its raining, this makes me slow. All my joints are pretending to be injured (psychological) and I am certain that no matter how many times I go, I will need to 'go' through nerves.I've been dressed in my kit for ages except for my race number (in case I crease it). Does everyone get this nervy?

  • Hooray!!!!!!

    I did it. There was a really really bad hill, it tipped down with lovely rain, but I ran my best ever time, 26min 40 seconds. It was so exhilarating, fabulous,wonderful. But an hour later I was freezing and shivering-weird. However I feel just GREAT now (after hot bath). I would NEVER have believed this possible a year ago. I have to say this C25K is amazing.

  • That time is amazing! Congratulations.
