My Best Friend: The First 10K

On Bank Holiday Monday May 27th ( THE ONLY SUNNY DAY OF THE YEAR SO FAR…..) Sophie ran the BUPA 10k in central London.  I sweated hard at the sidelines and saw Mo Farah, several men dressed as toilets, a crocodile and a man in a thong (can’t bear to think about the chaffing!).  And then Soph powered past looking confident and cool.  Her time was 54 minutes and 46 seconds.  There were 11,000 runners and Sophie came in 873rd Female and 97th in her age group. Fantastic!

In the week or so lead up to this, Soph had engaged a running coach; Keith Anderson from Full Potential.   He has created a training schedule for her which started with a rest day luckily as  she’d run for 65 mins the day before and so was already tired!  So, next dates for the diary are Bedgebury Forest Trail 10K in Kent on 8th June and Trent Park Trail 10k on 23rd June.

The events calendar is taking shape nicely and there will be more news and photos to follow………Well done Soph, keep it up!
