British 10K

Posted: 23/06/2015 at 15:09

We did it in 2012 - didn't need much water as it was rather cold, but I seem to remember there was plenty available.  It was friendly enough and a good route, but took ages to get going (we saw the winner cross the line on the big screen before we'd got past the start).  You shouldn't be left behind, but be prepared to hang around a lot. 

Good luck, hope you enjoy it.

Might also be worth checking out hotels around Crawley/Three Bridges/Gatwick, on the train line from London.

I'd also not worry too much if you don't lose weight straight away - you may be replacing fat with muscle and the scales may not drop immediately.  As others have said, it's important to measure yourself and take photos.

Good luck and well done for taking the step - you won't regret it.
