The summer saw me run my first ever 5k race - The Beverley 5k Classic - four laps of Beverley town centre as a precursor to the National Circuit Race championships (cycling) that followed. I just made this race as it was at 6pm on a Friday - therefore straight after work! I completed the course in 19:29 - my fastest ever 5K if you include training on treadmills! The event was well supported being local and with four laps you got plenty of cheers. However, lap courses are not my thing as I found it tedious even doing the same course just four times! But it was good to do a different distance.
