DanB Really tried for PB today but excuses start with being too far back in the opening field. Meaning too many runners to negotiate while trying to keep heart rate and pace steady. wind between 5 and 8km really put paid to effort put in and though I finished quite strongly I felt exhausted from effort and gutted that its my slowest 10km time for a couple of years. Last km up hill didnt help and what's more my nike plus says I ran 6.46 miles!! Probably due to running on outside pavements to get past people. Overall good atmosphere, bad for pb chance!

faulky This will be a competative run for me. I am taking this very serious as i am running to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

I set a target of one hour when i started training and then changed it to 48mins! This was a little unrealistic and feel that 55mins is my target for this one!

McNewbie Didn't plan to PB but once the gun went, got carried away a bit and pushed outisde the comfort zone. Appreciated the changes to the course, allowed more space for overtaking/being overtook.

Nephi Very crowded at the start and did not get a clear run until after 4km by which time I knew target was out the window so relaxed a bit. Should have kept a better watch on the pace as I could have still PB'ed with a bit more effort in the second half.  Sorry for the lost bets.

Obigone This will be a struggle for me this year! Having done the last 3, with progressively better times, I have been injured all year(foot) and haven't trained at all! So I will be happy to get round in 50ish mins! **Update** Well considering I haven't done a bit of training 53mins is not really that bad I suppose!! This in fact is the first race I've done since last years GMR. I was on target for sub 50 at 5k but fell away in the second half! Got a couple of shouts from fellow Fetchies on the way round(much needed, thanks!whoever you were! Ugg?) and let on to Pato1967 before the start. Stockport Harriers & AC 40:21 53:53 49:59 53:53 55.75

Should Av Run Quicker Big thanks for M62Steve for this.
Not sure on time as I haven't run a 10k in over 12 months, hope to get under 37mins but just don;t know due to no speed training at all and the people you have to run around most of the way.

Slowly But Shirley Will be my first ever fancy dress run.  I doubt that my costume will be all that aerodynamic :-) so this will be purely a 'fun run' in the true sense!  Look out for Snow White and the 9 Dwarves!  I'm Dopey!!  :-)
Update:  Loved it!!  It was never going to be about the finish time for us (luckily!) but that gave us a chance to soak up the atmosphere (though also much of the rain!!).  All 11 of us crossed the finish line together, which was a feat of co-ordination in itself!  Also glad my ears stayed on the whole way!! MK Lakeside Runners 54:57 1:12:25 1:29:20 35.18
