Crikey, I graduated last Friday and today I completed my first ever race! - The Broxtowe 5K. Talk about fast out the blocks, people just bolted at the start! I was already at the back but felt I had to keep up otherwise I'd have looked lonely...but its great to see all sizes, shapes and ability taking part.
Anyway, I completed in 35:02 and delighted with it. Having that goal of a race from the beginning of training was real inspiration.
Go for it!
