I did it!!

Yay! I did my first ever 10K run! Here’s the moment when I crossed the finish line.

 Despite being woefully under prepared thanks to viruses that just wouldn’t properly go away, I decided I would do the run even if I had to crawl. In the end , I managed to beat the original goal that I had set myself when I was fighting fit and on top of the training. I ran the 10K (6 miles) round Richmond Park, with the Royal deer looking on, in 1 hour 8 minutes! Yay! I did the run in aid of Sri Lankan street children – read more about it in my original post here .

    good for you! Nice going, Concetta! I am currently preparing for a road race in honor of a friend that passed. It's just a 5K but it's ALL hills. I get tired just thinking of it.
