25 March 2012 – Commando’s first 10k


For the runners out there who have been following Commando’s running progress… He did his first race today, 10k. I was very proud of him.He finished in 50.36 which was more than two mins below his PB. Ewan Thomas, Olympic 400m athlete, who lives locally also competed and came in about 5 mins before Commando. Not bad for an almost 50 year old who has only been running since last June. To put it all in perspective the first place came in a a shade over 30 mins and last place in 1 hour 45.

Apparently I didn’t make enough fuss of him on the day, despite telling him about 200 times how proud I was.
