EarlyRiser Confirmed. I'll run. Will attempt 71:25. POST-RACE. Had chronic low back pain this week with falling barometer, so not sure how would affect race. No pre-race flexibility exercises! Nothing to worry about though. Ran this just fine. Good quick start, slipped a little mid-race put picked up well towards end, feeling strong and finished fast. Another PB by miles. I like this distance! Unaffiliated 1:10:47 1:10:47 1:11:25 1:10:47 68.98

Girlie Anytime will be a pb as it's my first race at this distance!
Aiming to mince round at 10mm pace, but 2 weeks after GER so not expecting to break records here, but a benchmark ready for NV10 to get a proper pb!

***UPDATE*** had a fab race:-)  ran/minced and skipped with OldBiddy who really kept me going.  Delighted with the time as it was better than I was hoping for, only overtaken by WW in the final sprint, cos his legs are longer than mine!  

Official results now in and I was 2 secs behind WW! Lonely Goat RC 1:34:21 1:37:17 1:40:00 1:40:42 51.04

Gobi Instead of GSR.

First Mile was 5.31 and I was already being dropped by the lead 4 runners. Not bothered as I was looking for around 56 mins given that I ran hard yesterday and it would be nice to have a PB for 10 miles that is faster than my split. So in a group of 3 for 5/6/7 by 2 miles noticed I was shielding one guy and the other was leaning me into the puddles. Patience snapped about 2.5 miles and I legged it with a 100 metre burst. Caught 4th at 3 miles and by 5 miles I was alongside 3rd(28 minutes give or take). Up to this point I had not really considered the win but was aware that I was cathing the leaders. Decided to race and set off after the leaders who had run stride for stride for 6 miles but unfortunately the leader had the same idea so my gap to him stayed the same. Caught second just before 8 miles but was working really hard into a STIFF headwind as was the leader. Gap never really moved after that and my official time was 56.02 and 2nd place.

Good things: my last 3 miles were faster(good considering 8 was my slowest mile) than my first 3 including a 5.31 to finish.
I'm still race hungry 
I ran almost exactly what I wanted even though I got the course as being long. 

Bad stuff: Time to taper as for the second day in a row my left leg ran out of steam and got very lazy.

Slight annoyance: The reality of knowing that I could probably have won this race if I had been more confident at the start and even without that I would have won if I had not raced yesterday.

paulhalford As long as I make the start after a journey from London starting at 6.20am, I'm hoping more or less just to get around. Werrington Joggers 54:13 1:03:00
PowerJen #149 Looking forward to this.  Hope this rattle in my chest does not hinder my efforts for a new PB.

**A struggle for me today.  Suffered with Asthma throughout the last 2/3 miles.  Don't know if it was because it was damp.  Can't blame it all on that; I wasn't quick enough today.  Good race.  Good support from marshals** Cambridge & Coleridge AC 1:29:38 1:33:56 1:32:00 1:35:00 52.00
