Ed: New member, Alex Portwine reports on her first race, held on 3 August, since joining:
Well, I am chuffed to bits! I ran the Yateley Road Race Series 10K last night (in Hampshire) and finished in a PB time of 00:49:37!!! My big goal for this race was to run sub 50, and I am thrilled. It was a lovely race…a really friendly atmosphere, and next year I think we’ll take the kids, as they were well geared up to cater for spectators of all ages (bouncy castle, fun run and so on)! Thank heavens the weather seemed to cool down a bit last night, as it had been sweltering for the previous few nights, and so I had been concentrating on hydration quite a bit before hand.
