Marston Vale Forest 5K

Fri June 23 2006 Listed by Mr BDR
14 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
BDR Must beat 28.10 - my time from last years race!

Have only run twice in the last 2 months - obviously helps!!  Another PB. Team Milton Keynes 25:50 26:42 26:55 26:42 55.36
BlueWombat Really enjoyed this, apart from the last 2 km!  Good to see KatieB, Lums, VIII, Diva and Slowgoing at this FetchFest. Gave the run everything I could and came in faster than I expected. Cambridge & Coleridge AC, Cambridge University Hare & Hounds 20:21 21:13 21:13 66.01
GettingThere Was looking for a good time but before the start didn't feel confident, thought if I could find someone to follow in the race I may do okay.

Saw KatieB at the start and if I could follow her I'd be okay, but got in front of her at the 1K mark then just went for it following a couple of Harriers so pleased with my time.

PS Got pipped at the post by KatieB at the post again!! Bedford Harriers AC 20:19 21:43 21:43 62.68
KatieB Felt very hard work, tried hard to keep mile splits sub 7 and managed it. Horrible stitch at 3-4k and then just hung on to GettingThere all the way home. Great to see the 8s, Lums and mrs Lums and minilums, the Hobbes and the Divas. Blue Wombat went zipping past me in the first k too. :-) Also brief chat with the MRF's and Brooks. Bedford Harriers AC 21:28 21:41 21:41 68.75
Lieutenant Lucerne Unaffiliated 18:45 21:02 21:02 67.57
Lumsdoni Training going very well, hoping for a big PB here, be very dissappointed otherwise. I've bet on myself, so you should too!

Come on!  Totally exhausting in the heat, but spurred on by other fetchites, a stonking provisional time of 22:50!

Apologies to the two guys I clattered through in a unco-ordinated  sprint for the line!  Absoluely over the moon with the time!

Was made all the better for seeing the other Fetchites there, VIII, BlueWombat, KatieB, Slow Going, et al.  Great atmosphere and well organised. Will definately do next year. Stotfold Runners 22:39 22:50 24:59 22:50 57.16
Martyn Fisher I raced this quite hard, but my time was slower than it felt like given my exhaustion at the end.

A lovely scenic run, and very well organised, so hats off to A&FF. Definitely back next year.

Almost Athletes 21:55 22:24 22:50 60.47
Mr BDR A great race and a new PB!!!  
Km splits: 8:01 (missed the first marker), 4:13, 4:13, 4:07.
I also got to meet SlowGoing for the first time! Milton Keynes AC, Team Milton Keynes 19:54 20:35 21:00 20:35 63.41
Mrs Columbo Unaffiliated 27:29 29:22 29:22 51.96
No.8 ™ Great evening, good to see all other Fetchites, Blue Wombat, KatieB, Slow & Hobbes, MRF, Lums, Diva and families.

Got my first 5k out of the way and boy do they hurt. Pleased with the time although desparately wanted about 6 seconds quicker, but nevertheless a corker.  First 1k as too quick, suffered a bit in the middle, but managed to find something for a Unaffiliated 17:11 17:54 17:54 74.09
