TAR- sorry we missed you at the Coastal, that is some journey just to get to the race. I think it was about 15 years ago that runner died in a similar spot on the same final beach. Very relieved also to hear that this guy was luckier. It certainly put my below par run into perspective.
I did parkrun Leslie but just to pace my middle daughter to a PB of 24:57. The Coastal is no ordinary race. Mainly off road including 3 beaches. My best ever time is 1:26. But your right I was about 2-3 mins off what I was hoping for. Hopefully I'll get it right for GNR.
That's a very good time in the conditions Poacher you were looking in good shape.
This is a great race if anyone gets a chance to do it- an absolute classic. My run was a bit below par 1:31:09. Junior was 2 mins behind and 5th lady- first counter for the club ladies who won the team prize.
Those reps were certainly a surprise to me too, I was chasing junior and got a big surprise when I saw the time. Last effort today, 7 gentle miles on sand. Sunday is Coastal Run bound, and I can't wait. Might sneak a gentle parkrun tomorrow though...
