I did it!!
In about 1 hour 4 mins. Didn’t quite make the under the hour goal, but it was definitely a Personal Best (what with it being the 1st time I’ve EVER run 10K, and all).
There had been heavy rain in the morning, so the ground was muddy, and quite treacherous in places (it was mainly cross-country), but it was nice and sunny (with no rain) during the race. There was also a killer hill just before 4K, but some nice people handed out water at the top :o)
I’ve put before and after pics on my Ragley Hall 10K gallery
It was good fun… and I think I’ve got the running bug*... watch this space!!
*Although I don’t know why… I look forward to running, and feel great afterwards, but I’m pretty much in pain during it ;o)
