In early May I ran 10k with the Lady Garden, a gynaecological charity aiming to raise awareness for gynaecological cancers. They want women to stop being embarrassed about their bodies and start talking to people about any gynaecological concerns they might have.

I signed up for the 10k. I am now quite comfortably running 5k distances again but 10k? The last time I ran a 10k was for the Winter Run when my goal was to finish and not be in too much pain. Now I wanted to run it in under an hour and to run it without stopping.
