Abbey Dashed

Well, I finally got to do a race today! The Leeds Abbey Dash 2006 was my first event, as well as Amy's. I didn't break any records - I took about 70 minutes to get round, and although I feel I could have gone faster, I think it was more important to run with and support Amy and her friend Heather. I sprinted the last 1/2 mile, so I crossed the finishing line with a sweat on!
It was good to get round, and run along a route that I know. Kinda wierd to see Kirstall Road empty, and the police support people running on the street.
Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. I've now got to find another event in the new year, maybe further south so I can get my (lazy) brother to do it too.
