Look what arrived in the post today. I initially thought it had been sent to the wrong address, as it said β€œDear Runner”, but no, it was for me πŸ˜‰

This makes it all very real πŸ˜„

So 2 weeks to go now before my first ever race, the Cardiff 10k. Feeling fine about the distance, but the whole β€œrace experience” is going to be very new. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to it!

So much so that...

...I’ve also signed up for the Reading HM πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜³ 😊 in March next year, to give me something to focus my running on over the winter. Longest run so far is 14k, but plenty of time to build up to a HM distance before then.

Exciting times πŸ˜€

You know you want to.... ;)

Best of luck Ian, my first 10K is also on the same day (Sat 1st Sept) I’m doing the Bedford twilight 10k.

Have only run 8.1k so far - that 0.1 is very very important! Lol.

Yes, all set Sharron. Only thing we haven't decided is whether the three of us are going to run together, or each go for a fast time - I have one sister who is faster than me and one who is slower. If we run separately I'll be trying for a PB, but we'll see...

Got it all planned and looking forward to hearing your race report.πŸ‘

Think if someone could pop me down on the start line and collect me from the finish line that would be magic.πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
