Hi everyone! I'm a club jogger - seems a bit optimistic to call myself a runner! I run 3 times a week (averaging about 16 miles in total). The furthest I've ever run is 10K - which I've done lots of times - my average time is about 1hr 5mins. I'm finding it hard to get much quicker and I've also got a mental block about running past that 10K mark. I love organised weekend races as they help motivate me and keep me running the distance rather than wimping out!
I'd LOVE to run a half marathon and can't think of a better first one than the Great North. I've registered my email address today on their website for 2011 but I wanted to ask some advice of you experts.
How does the entry system work? How likely is it that i'll get a place the first time of asking? How can I/should I increase my training so that I can get from 10K to half? Why are there no 15K races out there?!!!
Thanks Andy! I've just had a look! There should be others on www.racephotos.topcities.com later - there's a message onto say they should be on about 9pm at the earliest. Always fun looking at the photos later eh?! See you at the next one!
