Can anyone give me some advice on first race nerves.
I have been thinking of entering a local race on 11 November at (the Maltby 7 miler). Ive never ever raced or been to one and am really nervous.
I have been running for sixth months and do 2.5 miles at 7 am either every day or other day, with two days off at the weekend. I sometimes run 6 miles on a Sunday morning if I have the time. My pace is approx between a 8 and 9 minute mile.
Im worried it will be full of club runners in their £100 ~+ shoes and technical tees. I just wear running tights, and cheap but really comfy Asics Blackhawks!! (I can almost hear you cringing).
I have absoloutely fallen in love with running. I am 35 and wish I had tried to earlier.
