jangles Have never run a 5k other than RFL with my daughter.  I've put in a fairly conservative prediction but I'd LIKE to make it round in about 23/24 minutes...would anyone be prepared to pace me? Redway Runners 23:59 23:59 25:00 24:11 63.50

Lieutenant Lucerne Watch time. Ran the first km a bit faster than planned, followed by two slower kms, before picking up the pace again (and even a slight 'sprint' over the last 100m). Unaffiliated 18:45 19:35 19:50 19:35 73.65

running ade First Race!  Went really well.  Entered with only the aim of finishing it.  Did it in under 30 minutes, so I was pleased. Unaffiliated 25:00 26:25 30:00 26:25 51.53
Schnecke PB here last year - can I do it again?  Will have more idea nearer the time.  Did it - not by much but I did it!  Time is from my stopwatch, as was last year's as this isn't chip timed. North Herts Road Runners 23:19 24:30 24:30 67.44

Slow Going bugrit. I shall focus on the first 2.5km where I felt great and strong, rather than the remainder where I felt knackered and desperate for somewhere to throw up :) UKnetrunner 19:18 20:06 19:59 20:24 65.80
Slowly But Shirley Guess I should never try and race 2 x 5ks in 2 consecutive evenings!  Lost precious seconds having to re-tie my shoelaces once I got underway and starting somewhere near the back, so that didn't help either!  Next year I'll start a bit further up and ensure my laces are tighter!!
I love this 5k ... flat with some slight downhill slopes ... what's not to love?!  Friendly marshalls too. MK Lakeside Runners 26:11 26:11 27:43 54.73

Stotty Watch time - 7 secs off start line. Actually quite shocked to have got under 25 mins. The rehabilitation continues....I'll have to wait until next year for a new PB... Waverley Harriers 21:21 24:39 24:30 24:39 57.23
