A fab race, brilliantly organised, great marshalls (the young girl with jelly babies certainly gets a thumbs up!), fab medal and goodie bag - congrats on your 30th year Thanet AC. I'll be back, but please can you turn off the wind machine next year
Definately a good idea to join a running club - my last 10k was about 60 mins, and don't feel too slow for my running club. They split into several smaller groups and you can decide which group you want to run with so not everyone goes really fast all of the time. My club is really very friendly too, so also a great way to meet new, likeminded, people.
