An hour to go before I leave for my 10k race - very nervous

I don't know why I am nervous, I know I can run 10k but it's my first proper race (bar Parkruns).

I don't really have a set time I want to finish (just want to get over the finish line) but would like to be under 1hr 15 mins which I think is easily achievable. I have printed out split times and strapped them to my Garmin more because I don't want to go off too fast easily done with other runners around.

I think I have everything, glucose tablets, headphones, tissues, Garmin, safety pins etc.

Still have a bit of a dodgy ankle but hoping it will hold out for the duration of the race and I have a nice blue ankle support to nurse it along.

If you are reading this before the race good luck! If afterwards, whatever happened, you put yourself out there and had a go, so well done.
