This morning I ran in the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow, doing the 10k race. My time was about 65 minutes – Kenenisa Bekele ran 10k in 26 minutes in 2005, so I have some way to go.
I’ve never run in a race like this before and I was very surprised at the number of people who were walking the route, right from the start – maybe calling it a run is a bit misleading…
Oh, and I got a sendoff from Jimmy Savile at the start!
All the results are now at:
I came 3034th out of 5636 with a time of 1 hour 1 minute 48 seconds!
So close to getting under the hour mark…
A few weekends ago I ran 1.5 miles in 10 minutes 40 seconds.
