Hi Everyone

Just by way of update I did it and finished!   I was a bit shocked at my time 01:03:14 - I have never ran that fast before!!  So for a first go I was really happy with my time and felt great - absolutely loved it and looking forward to doing more in the future.  Only thing is I slipped and fell on the path by the river at the half way mark and had to stop so lost at least a minute there if not more - I carried on though with nasty cut on leg with blood running down it even though I felt like crying!!  I have definitely got the running bug and have now signed up for half marathon in July next year - again no way I could do that at the moment but I've got plenty of time to train!

Thanks for all your advice and support here

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

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

I will be wearing my gloves and am going to hide my nano in them as it's so small and put the headphones on after race has started - will pass the headphones through my top and hide in my shock absorber strap (nice!) - there sorted!

Thanks Sharon and Hansyhobs - you're still way ahead of me - I have never in my life ran for anything - absolute beginner!   Good luck to you both too and will see you there - you'll recognise me easily - I will be the one who is last

My heart nearly stopped when I read this was "fastest 10k around" by then it was too late as I had entered already!  Don't worry as I am definitely going to be last - I can only do 11 min miles at best lol I am going right to the back of the start line!!
