Hi Runners World people
Tomorrows my first ever race at 10k, I've never run a race in my life. I am 45 year old women and I have been getting fit in the gym since January primarily to lose weight on the treadmill/crosstainer and weights (not heavy) and then I started jog/walking outside and loved it. However now I'm starting to worry and have doubts about whether it was such a good idea to have entered this race. I have run 10k 5 times outside on hilly terrain and twice on the treadmill, my best time on my watch is 1.29 outside. I know its not very fast. There isn't a cut off point in this race but before today I looked at the race as a challenge as I enjoy my jog/walking but since this morning I am petrified that I won't be able to complete it or look like a complete muppet.
Have other first time race runners been this worried about what the race would hold?
Your answers would be very reassuring
