First competitive race and it was a little odd running with so many people.
very hot day and a few hills up and down greenwich park-really enjoyable tho.
soooo hot. and hilly. really well organised and very enjoyable.

Starting to believe my own hype set off at a crazy pace (once i'd got through the masses runners at the start. Realised my mistake around2 miles and nearly gave up half way through (shame on me!) but plodded on until the end.

2nd in my age group in london (31-40) surely can't have been that many old duffers running it then?!
Well hilly!!!!
I got a flyer for this race at the excel centre whilst collecting my race number for the London Marathon it sounded exciting !! l entered this race before l had done ran the marathon and was convinced l would find 10km a walk in the park. Gulp on the day the weather was HOT ( surprise, surprise ) and Greenwich Park is very HILLY. Yes l admit l did struggle and my mantra was C'MON GIRL GET A GRIP , YOU'VE DONE A MARATHON however my energy levels were LOW , my mental strength ( which l had in abundance for 26.2 miles ) was disappearing rapidly but through gritted teeth l did manage to finish and got another lovely medal for my efforts.
Hot and hilly in Greenwich Park. Two laps. Jax beat me.
too hilly!!!!
