I did nearly throw up at the start and couldn't sleep last nite. It was painful physically and mentally i just kept telling myself everybody is doing thier own thing and not judging or looking at what youre doing.
I came last in the group but was the only woman in my category to finish so technically i won, but i had no competition so it wasn't very hard smilewinkgrin .
It has been a huge learning curve and things are really looking up. I hope it'll keep going now that i have therapy booked agsin too.
My husband was thrilled i went with him, he races with the big boys! It was good to go out together. He's delighted i'm getting a hold on things so fingers crossed it'll last. I don't want to jinx myself by thinking too much. I have to keep the negative thoughts at bay.
Thanks for all the support.

Congrats, Boo! You should be really proud of yourself! You stuck with it and you finished! Things will continue looking up. But if by chance you do happen to have a setback, don't let it get to you. Setbacks show us that we've had progress. Keep your eyes forward (but not too far into the distance). Also, begin a journal and write about this experience. It will help.
