Just done my first run and it was ab fab well enjoyable, but my time Mmmm
1Hour 3 Mins ????
But 12000 people to dodge and weave between....
Should i be dissapointed ??
I am pleased it went to plan as such,
I just wish i could have got a better time but realistically there were too many people about.
But wow what an atmosphere,wouldnt of missed it for the world !!
well, now that you have done your first, you can look for a smaller club 10k
and you have a pb-it is a pb as you havent done 10k before
Yeah , think i may wimp out of proper runs and do the mass produced fun runs ,as i am not
that serious about running,other than its excersise and it stops me from drinking loads and being
a couch potato.....thinking the Leeds Abbey Dash in November (10k) ?
you are serious about running!
you just did a race
Bye the way never got over Wilkies disgusting pics from Friday !!!!
Never eat another donught again !!!
here, i missed those
Where were they?
OMG you will need to get the site of her on Monday
She was on one about "Goats" and her office being all "Porn-sui-ed" !!!!
Leave it to your imagination......
There you go PH dont blame me !!!!
My first time as a 10k er too, was a little scared this morning and have to say, and shouldn't have had that curry last night........... however did it in 1hr 4 mins which I thought was okay for a novice.
Thought it was really well organised, but would have been better to have markers every 1K..
.Does anyone knw who the band waz playing on Meanwood Road?
Well Done Vix
No idea who the band was ??
They were loud though,even so it took my mind of the sea of "sticky" gatorade on the floor!!!
Well done Vix. That's a good time. Really wasn't the best conditions for a good time today.
Ordinarily I wouldn't have spent so much money or travelled so far for a 10k but this was one race I had to do and, getting drenched yesterday and nightmare journey home apart, I'm so glad I did it. Admit to being a right wuss and having a bit of a blub at the start.
well done guys - was cheering you all near the finish
iannaylor - my first 10k was 1hr 3 too, sign up for abbey dash, that is a good flat fast 10k
well done everyone and a fitting way to remember Jane
Totally agree such an emotional day.....
Kept me going a few parts of the course..
Keep Running xx
Thanx for support it was really welcome. Think I'll do a bit more training before entering anything else.
I have to confess that Jane really was the reason I made the effort to get my running shoes on, she was so inspiring, I guessed that if she could do so much in her condition, I should do my bit too!!
Managed to raise £615 for Martin House in process, so pretty chuffed.
My feet are now throbing like hell,but it was worth every ache and pain.
C u next year x
Well done on completing your first 10k
Vix1 - Book up your next race and well done on the fundraising!
Janes daughter Rebecca was 7th lady btw - just behind Nell Mc apparently -so some of her mums determination must have rubbed off - well done her on what must have an emotional day for the family
Signed up for Abbey Dash
Come on lets run 4ever
Run 4 Jane
LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS
(Sorry got carried away with it all , but go with what you feel strongly about !!!)
Thx Jaggy... Thinking about Harewood House in September...may have got the bug!
Janes daughter did so well, agree Buney bet they shed a few tears today, but they must all be so proud of what she achieved, it's great that they continue her legacy in such a positive way.
The Abbey Dash is a similar type course to run4all, its pretty flat and a out of the centre back in type of course with just a turn in the road and then back down the other side. Its not as busy though and the start has a better flow to it. I actually had to run/walk that but went all the way round yesterday without stopping and still did a slower time, hmm....so yeah its probably a faster course too.
Can't see a new thread for this. Is there much change to the course since 08? Is it a fast one?
