Cold, great, fun; was it really 10 km? (about: 2005)|
Marelize Nel from Pretoria, South Africa (5/4/05)
The race started at 7 am and it was still cold; the sun has just risen above the horizon, but the temperatures had not.
There were a lot of 10 km participants. The spirit at the beginning was amazing - all the excitement, all the talking.
When the cannon went "boom" and we all started running, it only got better.
I have never run a 10 km before this one and for me it felt great. Running below 55 was my goal and I did achieve that. But the rest of the people around me wanted to know if it really was 10 km.
