I did it!!

Follow-up to Onwards and upwards from Sarah's blog

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)

Onwards and upwards

Writing about web page http://www.10ksponsorme.org/sarahotoole

Following the 5k Race for Life in Coventry in June, I’ve entered myself in a 10k race at Ragley Hall on Sunday 24th September (a week on Sunday – eek!). Hopefully the weather will not be as scorching this time!

I’ve been doing some training with the Warwick Sport staff running club, and the furthest I’ve run (slowly!) is about 8k… so not far to go… My target is to finish within an hour, although I’m a bit concerned about the ‘challenging hills’!!

If anyone would like to sponsor me, you can do so here or in cash if you prefer! All proceeds go to Cancer Research.
