today was my first 10K or any distance, in fact my first run ever- i have been training for 2 months and i will post this in the beginners thread as well -
added thrill : Haile Gebrselessie was there to start my wave and I shook his hand ( he had just completed the distance in 27:39 and was there with a big smile - what an inspiration!.

well done roadking, it sounded a great day. watched it on the TV, having done one local 5mile race so far, and another 5k coming up this weekend and really felt the atmosphere. Looks like a city race is a good one for support and excitement. Good luck for your next one.
great time Kiira - you must both be on a high

Well done all, what a brilliant event! Sunday was my second 10k and clocked 1hr 15 exactly!
Did my first in March at Heaton Park and clocked 1hour 19mins 23 so am chuffed to have shaved 4 mins off in 2 months.
Quit smoking 18 months ago at 3+stone overweight, very unfit, couldnt run for more than a minute. Now 2 stone lighter (and still going) and running every day! :)
Looking for the 3rd race already!
