This morning I ran in the Cheltenham 10k race. I was much less apprehensive, as I'd done one 10k before. But it was colder, and much windier than the Evesham Vale one back in July. We forgot to take a camera to the racecourse, but here's a picture of my race number and my medal. Don't worry - I didn't get close to winning anything! - they kindly gave a medal to every finisher. But I did manage to beat my previous time, and come in under the hour: 58min 15secs. I was dead chuffed, and quite a bit puffed too.Well done to Bob, JJ, Rupert, Ian, Tommy and Hazel who also were running in it, most of whom finished rather more comfortably under the hour.
