What do you get for your money?
I don't think Leeds is too bad.... I live right at the edge of Leeds and it's quite rural. I like it here.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE TODAY! Enjoy the race, looks to be a nice morning!
Leeds is fine, all cities are s***holes if you only go near the centre (trust me I've worked in most cities within 150miles of Leeds and they're all the same). Leeds has some fantastic countryside very close by indeed and a lot of affluent suburbs, just like most cities.
Did anyone PB today then? I had a shocker, over a minute slower than last year after a recent chest infection. Still Sub 38 but wanted it to be sub 36....
Managed a PB of 53.08 bit slower than I hoped but I am 51 and only been running races since March this year, 45 mins next year if I work hard
Smashed it! Was hoping for a sub-50 PB... romped home in 45:55! Almost 7 minutes off my previous PB!
My time isn't as good as any of the above but it was my first 10k and first competitive run today.
I managed 50 mins 08 seconds. Which is what I was aiming for roughly. I was a bit narked with myself though as when I originally registered for the dash, I hadn't started running at all so I put my estimated time at 1h 30. So when I started today I was right at the back and for the first mile I couldn't move fast enough through the crowd so I reckon I lost at least a couple of minutes due to that.
On the plus side, I did say to myself it would be a major bonus if I beat Leeds Rhinos and former Bradford Bulls rugby league Legend, Jamie Peacock and I did actually beat him by over a minute. Not bad for someone who only 5 months ago was a couch potato!
I've already registered for the Bradford 10k in a couple of weeks!!
I really enjoyed it today and felt like I achieved something and I raised a few quid for charity too!!
My run was shit.
Started off well but my dreaded injury took the lead and so hobbled the rest of it.
And they only had XL tshirts left.
Aww gutted for ya. My knee started twingin at about 4 miles which slowed me down a bit but I still managed a sprint finish. Funniest thing was when I crossed the finish line and stopped, my legs wouldn't stop and tried to start pumping again LOL
Very happy to break 50 mins (49:51) and to beat my age (55)
