Natterjack Southport 10k
That was cold today. Well done to everyone and well done with the PB's.
I couldn't even find the bowling green. Must try harder.
Managed to get a PB myself. My watch said 51.45 and official time was 51.53. Either way, it still beat my PB from 2 weeks ago of 53.07.
The wife has been telling me she saw quite a few runners who were "obviously not going very quickly", and definitely behind me on the first and second lap, saunter across the finish line a good few minutes ahead of me, still not appearing to be going very quickly...
She reckons a few people , ahem, got confused and may have accidentally "missed" their final lap....
so there will be a few people out there with incredible PB's!
LOL thats quality if people did do that Kicked-It!!
Me and Gold Pig were discussing this with the K markers, not long after the start there was a 3K marker (I think), Gold Pig said he looked at his watch "Hmmm 3mins, the PB is on!!" HAHAHA
Not that much quicker really K-I, but i'm hoping with another 6 weeks training behind me I can knock a bit off again!!
Wesham is 28th November Xan, we having a Seaside reunion then??
The wife just helped me try the Jointace gel we got in the goody bags on my calves which are a little tight now (nice massage, nowt funny!!) I may invest in some for after future races I reckon!!

She must be mistaken, anyway i'm sticking with my time of 34.12 for todays race
Paul...its looking like the reunion is on then.
Today was my very first organised run, aimed for under an hour and made it in 58 mins, i was really pleased!!!
i aim to be one of the runners overtaking me be this time next year! he he
does anyone know if there were any pictures taken from this event and where they can be found? i have seen the results page.
Goldpig = 6.25......JPAtko = 6.22 (6.24),..... Kneejob 6.27....., Sub3Jakesey = 6.28
Commiserations to kneejob ran 40.05 with garmin reading of 6.27
Don't think anyone ran the shortest possible line today due to there being nearly 700 runners over a twisting course - especially true for faster runners who had to weave round slower runners on the final lap
I measured the course for UKA - it was accurate if you ran the shortest possible line

Vicky - looking at the results I think I was the one who just managed to catch you in the last 50 yards. Not sure where that sprint came from.
Really enjoyed the run today. My first time running any actual race. I was a bit nervous not only because it was my first race but also because of people saying about laps being boring and about the packed start.
The start wasn't too bad though. I was actually tieing my lace when they started and was at the back but I was still over the line after 15 seconds from gun time. It was pretty easy to move past people over the first 1km as well.
Anyway, when I pack in smoking and lose about 2.5 st - hopefully I will be able to smash my debut 58m time. The longest I had run in training was just over 4.5m so I was also thrilled to do it without stopping. Race adrenaline defininitely helps push you.
Looking forward to the run at Knowsley Safari Park at the end of November now.
No gripes from me on the course length. Its always worth a try to blame shift when you miss a target by an agonising 5 seconds! Still nearly 2 mins up on my last 10k.
Garmin worked fine and amazing for me I ran a dead even split, 20 05 out and 20 back. Handy things these GPS gadgets!
The fact my stomach turned itself inside out (dry thankfully!) tells me that was all I had in the tank!! I have parked my 36' PB days in the diary for good I think.
Onto the hills and mud of Hellrunner now!
C Hughes 2 - Check out the reviews of the Weaham and Knowsley runs mate!! See you at Wesham!! LOL
As far as I know it was the 1st time any of us had met up, i'm up for it again though as we had a nice little natter before and I made sure I saw a few faces before leaving after the race!! Everyone was friendly and I look forward to meeting people again/putting more faces to names!!

On a sad note you will be sorry to hear that the mother of Darrell Soden (Natterjack Running Centre), co-organiser of the race died yesterday after a long illness.
Eric the link isnt working mate!!
Sorry to hear about Darrells loss.
