I convinced a friend to run a 10k with me and we did it! Bear in mind that this is his first 10k ever and I am so proud of him! He did extremely well despite the fact that it was a hilly run. I personally enjoyed this run and noticed a sense of confidence running races. This run was held in Greenwich park (I remember pronouncing it as Green-wich but it is actually green-(w)ich, I was embarrassed). I am definitely more geared up for races now and want to run another 10k soon for time.
Side note, the medals they gave out was so cute! In conjunction with Movember, they gave us little moustache medals. I love it!
