Hi well done on finishing your first race, you shouldnt really complain about your finishing time as its your first race,the good thing is you now have a time to beat in your next 10km,now thats when it gets harder!!! good luck with your running.  Andy.

I just wish i could have got a better time but realistically there were too many people about.

But wow what an atmosphere,wouldnt of missed it for the world !!

well, now that you have done your first, you can look for a smaller club 10k

and you have a pb-it is a pb as you havent done 10k before

Yeah , think i may wimp out of proper runs and do the mass produced fun runs ,as i am not

that serious about running,other than its excersise and it stops me from drinking loads and being

a couch potato.....thinking the Leeds Abbey Dash in November (10k) ?

Great effort well done you  done the hard part by doing your first 10k I have done three races now after running 12 months and made mistakes in all but keep working at it ( goiing off 2 fast to getting stuck behind fun runners)but now i have got my 10k time to 45.23mins and going to break that this year.(hopefully)try mapping a 10k route you can run and go back to it once a month to test yourself but then leave it alone for a few weeks, and try to intro some speed work but you have got plenty of time to nov im sure if you keep consistant you will smash a PB enjoy what you achieved and keep smilingpaul

well done, i live in leeds and have seen how windy it is today you did well, the abbey dash is good but again has a lot of people, i did the harewood house 10k last year which is a really good race

My first time as a 10k er too, was a little scared this morning and have to say, and shouldn't have had that curry last night........... however did it in 1hr 4 mins which I thought was okay for a novice.

Thought it was really well organised, but would have been better to have markers every 1K..

.Does anyone knw who the band waz playing on Meanwood Road?

22/06/2008 at 18:10

Well Done Vix

No idea who the band was ??

They were loud though,even so it took my mind of the sea of "sticky" gatorade on the floor!!!

Well done Vix.  That's a good time.  Really wasn't the best conditions for a good time today. 

Ordinarily I wouldn't have spent so much money or travelled so far for a 10k but this was one race I had to do and, getting drenched yesterday and nightmare journey home apart, I'm so glad I did it.  Admit to being a right wuss and having a bit of a blub at the start.
