Have I stopped running????
However, as this blog was originally dedicated to my journey towards my first ultra marathon (and yes, there will be more, just not every year), it seemed that after my recovery week, it should wind up.
However, I have had a few people ask me if I was going to write/blog again. And when a friend asked if I would be interested in contributing a race result as a guest blogger on her own website, it seemed as good a time as any to pick up the pen!
Sorry to redirect you, but may I please point you to my recent race results for the Emma and Tom’s Christmas Run on my friend Nell’s website? Her website is called Good Morning Runners: http://goodmorningrunners.blogspot.com/2013/12/guest-post-emma-toms-christmas-run-race.html.
You will also find some other interesting running articles on her great website as well.
In this 10km race, I had a time goal to try to run a sub-50 minute 10km for the first time. As a summary though, for those who like the stats [SPOILER ALERT]:
Distance: 10km (actually 10.89km, once you dodge & weave)
Time: 49:32.5 minutes
- 8th in my category (40-49 F, 40 runners in category, top 20%)
- 41st for all females (336 female runners in total, top 12%)
- 198th overall male & female runners (674 runners in total, top 29%)
See you on the track!
