My First Race!

A brief diversion from matters vintage - I just want to update you all on how my first race went.  For those of you not up to speed (!), I recently ran 10K.  The atmosphere was really fantastic, and I enjoyed the whole experience, coming in at a very respectable time of 54 minutes 20 seconds, which I think is particularly good as the course was in Caerphilly, South Wales, and there were a couple of uphill sections!

Thank you to all of you who left me lovely messages wishing me luck for the big day - it was such a good feeling knowing so many people were thinking of me and wanting me to do well.

I've reached my target of raising £100 for the eating disorders charity Beat, and the donations are still coming in so I think I'll exceed it!

Hmm, there's another 10K in September, I'm already thinking of entering and trying to get under 50 minutes...

Running is addictive!
