Great - one less thing to worry about!  I have worked myself up so much about this race that I feel sick today!  You'd think I was running a marathon or something - I really need to stop being such a drama queen.  See you all there

Kal, just go out and enjoy it. Youre running for yourself. ANd I always like this one:

Loved it also!  Don't know why I was worrying so much.  Managed 1:03 which I am really pleased with for a first race and the fastest I have ever gone.  Only thing is I slipped and fell on the tow path so had to stop for a couple of minutes - nasty graze up leg!  Helenjane007 - brilliant time.

Hope everyone enjoyed it - I will definitely do this one again. 

Well done everyone

Picked up an injury at the 7k mark making me finish 20 secs over my PB I'm in pain tonight!!!....hip,knee and ankle!!??? :-/ Well done Helenjane and kal!!! I enjoyed it until the injury part! The park looked beautiful this morning and loved running alongside the rowers too. VERY well organised event!!! 100X's better than Run to the Beat half marathon!!!!

RTTB has never been that well organised. Commiserations on injuries ladies,decent times nonetheless.  Regular brufen and ice will help.Have a look at some of the "smaller"events too , depending on where you live , like those from http://www.eventstolive.co.uk/  local stuff can be as much fun and inclusive.Theres a world of stuff out there!
