Gerard - great performance, and great attitude. Loved your report (I do enjoy a detailed race report) !
I really just wanted to run and take part and see familiar faces again and enjoy the lovely camaraderie that comes with the joyful pursuit of keeping going with the one foot in front of the other thing that we do.
I experienced this at the half marathon my daughter ran - athough I was only supporting, it did make me wish I was out there, after only one race this year.

Time to stop messing about, and make some plans !
The local VoGit seems handy, Gerard . . . . .
OO - nice racing
