5k Race For Life 2007

NOTES TO SELF

1. IT IS NOT BY FORCE TO RUN ESPECIALLY WHEN I AM NOT WELL! Am I not the same person who "advices" people not to run when they are not feeling 100%. Am I She-Ra? *Hissss*

2. STOP STOP STOP BEATING MYSELF UP ABOUT MY TIMES WHEN THEY ARE NOT WHAT I AIMED FOR... Especially when I am not well!

THE RACE
I met Calabar Gal and her Running Partner... Calabar Gal looks like a fit lady o... :-)

I knew I wasn't feeling too good and kept on saying I should be okay but I was a little worried.
The race started ok... the first 2kms were slower than we wanted because we had to make our way round people and sometimes we were forced to run slower than we wanted to. When we ran past the 3km mark, I told Vickii I'd be stopping soon, she did try to encourage me on but I was busy feeling sorry for myself... LOL! She asked if it was okay if she ran quicker and left me behind, I said I'd keep up with her... I did so for a short while but I had to slow down eventually. I just made sure I kept her in my sights....

I saw her finish and I checked her time on my watch: 30 minutes 38 seconds. Shortly after I finished in 30 minutes 56 seconds. Vickii didn't feel too well right before the end of the race and I met up with her(she's okay now) and then felt very weak and hot... who sent me? LOL! A member of the ambulance crew stayed with me till I felt better and took my details.... Buki o!!!!!

As you know, our target was 28 minutes but it just didn't happen cos we were both not very well.... Next time o! Next time!

I actually went on an on about how crap this time was... How silly! I could have hurt myself, running when I am not well. Right now, I feel much worse than I felt this morning...


I went to see my Mummy for a couple of hours and now I am back, about to take a shower, take my Beechams and read my Harry Potter book ;-)

Well done CG, Vickii, CG's RP and MEEEEE :-)

Well done everyone, at least you didn't do a Kelly Rowland and kpafuka during the race. I'm guessing you owe Vickii lunch for her "win".

When you told me you were starting to get ill on Wednesday, and you still felt really bad on Friday I did think that maybe you shouldn't run ... but I didn't even dare suggest that to you because I knew you wouldn't even consider not trying so I think you should be really proud of yourself because you did the race sick and you still did it in a very good time ... well done!

Well done to CG and her running partner too!
