Disco Dave Fourth year for me. Nice course.
Update: Totally gutted that I come so close to my PB. I always get a stitch when I do this race. Still beat my time from last year though. Red Lodge Runners 50:42 55:29 56:00 59:15 46.16
DrBob Wasn't reallly in the mood for this, worrying about a niggly heel pain and not feeling very boingy.  Got running with first lady for the first half of the race which helped pull me along.  Didn't work hard enough in the last couple of miles but overall fairly pleased with the time.
I suspect the chip timing was taken by someone waving a baton at the numbers, rather than a timing mat.  Mine was a couple of seconds out from what the clock said when I passed it at the finish. Cambridge & Coleridge AC 31:04 35:36 35:50 82.45
EarlyRiser Benchmark race for start of summer training. Will run this one because can't be at Thetford 10k. :-( POST-RACE. Quite content with time. Hard effort, but good to run this distance again after four months absence. Will improve later in the year. Unaffiliated 43:07 43:11 44:00 44:30 67.51

LBM First time for me at Kings Lynn, and was hoping to PB, which thankfully I did by 49 seconds. Would have preferred to have gone sub 40, but never mind, I'll have to do that next time:-)

Very pleased with finishing position (84th out of a finishing field of 1550) Norfolk Gazelles Running Club, Trail Running Association 38:43 40:11 39:59 40:15 74.02

Purple Green Imp Felt a lot better in this race than at Lincoln 10k.  In the end this amounted to a 22 second improvement on my time.  A step in the right direction but it's about time I got under the hour mark again. Witham Runners 57:43 1:01:45 1:01:45 46.31
