you were now where near the back, there were people coming in 20 mins after you...keep up the good work, running clubs can be very intimidating places for beginners, if you are based locally give the Alchester guys a go, they are a friendly bunch on the most part

Hi Hayley

Sorry you felt intimidated but 50 minits is not a plod around its a time to be proude of there are far far more runners behind the time you completed the course in.

I do not class any one as a plodder as it was great to see so many new runners taking part in their first 10k run and you to should be proude of your achievement especially as its only your second 10k.

It is a shame you do not live closer as you could join us on a Wednesday evening .

We cater for all abilities and distances of running ,runners are a freindly bunch and you do get to know or even recognise other runners especially if they run at same pace as you.

Now you have completed this race have ago at our other 10k on December 9th the Andy Reading 10k.

Hi Hayley, 

You definitley aren't 'ploddy' coming in at under 50 mins

Completely agree with you about joining a club/taking part in a race where everyone else seems to know everyone else is scary (I joined Alchester just under 2 years ago without knowing anyone at all). Most runners are very friendly though, we've all got something in common even if interests/lives outside of running are very different so you'll always have something to talk about!

Well done you for taking part in Candleford your own though and for letting us know how you feel about the event too.

Hope you find a club to join very soon who are a nice bunch- I gather from fittorun you live too far from Bicester to come and join us.

Dear all

 Thanks for replying to my message- another first for me as I've never posted a forum message before either! I will definitely think about joining a local club; I had had a look at the website of one quite close to me but it did look very focussed on the high achievers rather than beginners so perhaps I 'll try elsewhere....don't know if anyone knows friendly clubs near Aylesbury?

Will also enter the December race, all being well.

Might be an idea to look at Bearbrook Joggers Hayley ( I suspect you have looked at the other Aylesbury lot).  I'm one of the people who finsihed after you

Hi Hayley, just one more thing, if you do enter the Andy Reading race (or even if you don't) the come and join us on the thread on here too... and if you do enter then let me know your number- you'll get an extra loud cheer of you do!
