Well arrived early for the race this morning and was quite warm for once after a mile and a bit warm up it was over to the start line for the off. The first 300m or so was over a dirt road/track and up a slight incline, in 12/13th place as we came onto the road and ran into the town centre. The May Fair was in full swing and the support was very good, turning out of the town the next 3/4 of a mile where up hill and now running into 11/12th place with another over 50 year old. after the next turn the road was undulating and some young lad who had gone off with the two leaders blew up and I past him just before the next turn about 3 &3/4 miles into the run and just after the 4 mile point on a slight incline I managed to drop the other 50 year old putting me into 10th place. The last mile and a bit was up hill and it was here that the legs started to get a little heavy but managed to close the gap from about 70m down to 20m of the guy in 9th place before turning again towards the finish and a good 500m to the line. I crossed the line in 37:06. I had hoped to dip under the 37mins but considering the last weeks training and the course I'm still very happy with that. Next race is 5 miles and thats a week on Wednesday. 10th place 1st 50/55 and £30 prize money Out on the trails tomorrow for a nice MLR.
