Hi, Im not a member of a club but the club I would like to join (because it is fairly local, don't know what the people are like) does a series of 5 milers over the summer. The first one is tonight and I don't know whether to go. I want to but I am slow (and fat). I know you all will say Yes Go, but will these club runners really want to be waiting for me to finish before they can get their results, will they just laugh at me? I think last year the winners were running times like 20-25 minutes, It would probably take me 55 -60 minutes (it is a fairly hard course). What should I do?? Be honest you club runners, do you really want fat slow women running in your fast club races??
