Jenson That was my watch time. Really struggled. A minute slower than last year. Need to pull my finger out and make a few changes to my lifestyle if I want to improve and not go backwards. A wake-up call?

Always good atmosphere, course ok though I can't say I ever enjoy it, rain great..I'll be back next year and I will go around 45 or under. Hopefully, people won't get married the day before, ha ha! esk vally fell club 43:20 46:26 47:28 64.06

Lisrun Not expecting to be fast on this one as I will be recovering from other races *Update* Last of four races in three days and it went surprisingly well. Started at the very back and did a good warm up for my ankle before the start. First mile was slow and then speeded up.

Rigel Weird weather - warm and humid, tanked it down at about 5-6km. Soaked to skin but at least it was refreshing! Took it at steady pace to try and avoid further injury to shin splint (wore support while running). No real problem during race but ached afterward under knee. Redcar RC 48:04 55:12 58:00 57:37 52.65

Plenty of small car parks dotted all over the town centre. CCTV in operation making parking crime free.
