Well done getting to 50 plus miles TP. I would hate a race that was not clearly marked! And great job by Elspeth.
Thanks OH, I had a good race in a stiff breeze. Not far behind two runners I usually see in the distance, well ahead of two I'm always close with. Only disappointment was not getting my occasional training partner to a PB, when we hit the turnaround into the wind I told her to tuck in behind me, but the near constant headwind was too tough to keep up the required pace. I did win the sprint to avoid being chicked though . It is always a tough event but the final lap of the games field and being cheered by a large crowd (a few of who are no doubt thinking 'that sweaty gasping runner can't be my dentist can it?') is great. Plus the runners get to hang out in the games field for a nice view of the events.
Lots of windy wet weather here, now I need to take the dogs out in it .
