WHAT’S THE WORST ROOKIE ER­ROR YOU’VE EVER MADE AT A RACE? ‘Regis­tered an overly am­bi­tious fin­ish time for a 10K and, come race day, found my­self lined up next to Mo Farah! There he was in all his glory – and there I was in my old track­suit with a bot­tle of pop in one hand and my asthma pump in the other.’ – Sarah Hig­gins ‘For my first marathon (Loch Ness), I stayed at a ho­tel that of­fered a race break­fast – but only at 5am. By the time the race started, at 10am, I was starv­ing. Did the first half in 2:15, then started to dry-heave. Walked the rest of the way and fin­ished in 5:55.’ – Cas­san­dra Gleeson ‘Not me, but a friend farted too hard be­fore a race and ac­ci­den­tally pooed them­selves – and had noth­ing to change into. They raced, any­way. – Ryan Don­ald­son [A ‘friend’ eh? - Ed]
