Ed Johnson-Williams' microblog

I did my first organised running race last night. It was around Durham where I live. It rained pretty heavily the entire time including the 20-30mins standing around before the start. It was otherwise fun. I sprinted for a good bit at the end which was nice. Would have liked to go faster but the idea was just to find out what an organised race is like.

Paula Radcliffe gave me my medal at the end. Hello woman who had the marathon world record for a decade or something yes please give me a medal for running 5000m slowly.

Steve Cram was one of the marshalls on the course - just standing, hood up, shouting encouragement at people.
