I Just Ran A Race!!!!!!!

This morning I woke up and had no idea I was going to run my first race today.
I checked e-mails and there was one from Fit Chick saying there's a race tonight want to run with me?

Well we did and guess what, we didn't do too bad.

It was a fun run 2.5 miles and we finished in 27.50.

I have a PB! I have a medal!

Well done Fit Chick and well done me!

we are plodding good runners!!!

    well done CG and Fit Chick!!
  • well done girls!
  • Yay!

    Go Fit Chick and COuntry Girl :-)
  • Thanks everyone and especially Country Girl for running with me.

    Yeah we did it and in a very good time I think for beginner runners. The weather was rather close and humid which meant we were rather hot at the finish but getting the medal was the best tonic for us. We even had the pleasure of passing other runners as we went around! And we ran it all, no walking was involved!

    I did get a couple of piccies for our scrapbook taken by the St Johns Ambulance lady as a momento as well.

  • It's a great time - particularly in this heat. It was sweltering today.
  • Well done on your run Fit chick and country girl. I hope i do as well that with my run .
  • Well done Fit Chick and CG. Would love to see the piccies.
  • Superb performances from both of you - well done. There is nothing quite like the pleasure of finishing a race. (well, almost nothing ;) )
  • Many congrats!
  • I've seen the pics! You don't look too puffed out! then again i spoke to FC on the phone afterwards and she sounded like she'd completed FLM!!!! :)
  • Have tried to download the pics so they appear beside my name don't know if it will work though.

    Thank you for sending them FC

  • Well done - brilliant!
  • for those who don't know fc is in the grey shirt and CG in the white!!! well done! roll on r4l!!!
  • Country girl you had the same idea as me! Actually you look better than me!!!

    Chick, I might have sounded puffed on phone as I was talking to you, I was racing back to car to get top to avaid chilling down too fast! Dad and Dan were doing the 5 mile run so had to wait around for another three quarter of an hour as their race started as ours finished.

  • Sorry forgot to say who was who, Wasn't sure it would work.
    You mean I look redder than you, how can you run that far in that heat and not glow FC, mind you I don't have to run very far to get very red, I think I'll change my name to cherry tomato!!

  • Fit Chick,What web site is that I'd like to take a look?
    Yeah at least we wern't last eh. I'm still on a high, all my family are very proud of me.
  • Well done both of you!!
  • Country Girl

    Go to Google (or any search engine site) and type in Nene Valley Harriers or even Arthur Bowden 2003 results and you will see their web page at the top. Then look for the results bit.

    It's nice to see our name in Print on an offical race site!!!

    NVH have another race on 3rd Sept a 5K one (approx 3 miles) we could do it easy peasy! Fancy it?

  • Yeah , why not.
  • Put it in the diary then! Don't forget the Police have one in July, it's only 3k or 1.8 miles but I plan to run it with Lou if you want to join us.

  • I have already downloaded the form from the nvh site. Will let you know about the police one.
