Well!! It's all going swimmingly! Those of you keeping track may have noticed that I am getting into my stride now. I am starting to run and cycle every couple of days. I have managed to run 5.5km non-stop in 40 minutes, and I'm really proud of how I am getting on.
Or, I was until I made the mistake of looking at some of last year's finish times - just to see, you understand. You just enter a runner number, and their time is displayed. There are thousands of numbers to choose from, so I will start with runner 1000. Hmmm. 10km in 44 minutes. That doesn't sound promising. Must be a good runner. Try another one... Runner 179. Erm, 10km in 37 minutes. How about runner 2659? Nope, 48 minutes.
I'm going to be last, behind the granny on her Zimmer frame.
