2018 Races

I’ve entered a few races this year so I thought I’d do a quick post about them.

June – Romsey 5 mile Cake and Beer Race

I have to admit I was tempted in to this by the Cake and Beer but was reluctant. Could I get to 5 miles by June?! Anyway Anna and our mutual friend Graham convinced me I could so I signed up. There better be cake left by the time I finish!

June – Gosport Golden Mile 5K Race

I’ve spectated at this race for the past two years but never taken part. It’s a race along the seafront at Stokes Bay. My worry though is that it will be as hot as it was last year. Pretty sure it was around 27-30c!

September – River Ness 10K

I feel like I have unfinished business with this race so decided to give it another go. This time I’m determined to do well and not get shouted at by a marshal. See this post for what I’m talking about.

October – Great South Run 10 miles

You know when you marshal at a race and get caught up in the moment and think “I could do that” so you go home and sign up immediately? Yeah that! Now I think “You absolute fool” Praying I can just get round the course and finish it.

I hope the 5 miler, then the 10K will give me some incentive to keep training and make it to 10 miles for the Great South Run. That’s the plan anyway!
