connelld Before:
Looking to beat my PB on this one, but as I've never ran it, then I'm not so sure. I'm going to try and take advantage of the 2 circuits and up or drop my speed accordingly in the second lap if need be.

After:
To put it bluntly, I didn't like this race. Very boring. All on road and underpaths until the last bit where you take a very sharp turn right and up a track. I don't think personally I was 100% as I struggled for several miles after a good start. Kilmarnock Harriers & AC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 1:17:24 1:21:09 1:25:36 68.39

ClaireT My second HM and really enjoyed it, got the pacing a bit better this time and only felt like being sick after the sprint finish, instead of the whole way round :) 

Fiinished 4th lady, and knocked nearly 2min off last months PB, so I'm a happy chicken. Victoria Park - City of Glasgow AC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 1:23:34 1:26:11 1:30:13 1:29:23 73.02

Yano Don't yet feel fully fit so don't waste your bets! 
Post-race: Warm day and felt dehydrated throughout but apart from that felt very comfortable. Ran about 7min mile pace to halfway, lost about 3mins between 7-11 and then made about a minute back from 11-13. Good, strong finish but probably should have pushed pace on a bit earlier. Wasn't going for PB so reasonably happy with time. Course pretty uninspiring - long straights and too many rounadbouts - polo mint city indeed. Organisation was first class though and I was very glad of the water stations every 2-3 miles. 113th out of 635. Unaffiliated 1:29:45 1:29:45 1:35:00 1:33:56 62.32

kyt pre: excuses in early: no runs of over 7 miles for weeks, so I'll take anywhere around 1h40...

Dvorak Hoping for a modest improvement with more training and less snow.  **UPDATE**   Squeaked a PB at Polo Mint City (chip time).  24 roundabouts!  When I told someone I was doing EK they said Unaffiliated 1:53:58 2:04:44 2:06:00 2:08:28 47.42
