batmouse It was a cracking race.  A bit cold at the start and hard going on the sand.  But once on the coastal path it was too bliddy hot.  Didnt look at my watch.  Thought i am putting my head down and going for it.  So thats what i did.  Kept up with 2 girls in Red and White striped running vests.  I thought as long as i can keep up with these i think I am doing okay.  Lost one near the end and the other sped up at the finish.  But trailing them kept me going.  Was amazed when i got to Souter.  It was like woah I think I am doing okay! Gulped water.  That ended up my nose.  Kept going though.  Managed to catch up with a guy who passed me at the start.  I managed to get past him.  Whey.  Kept going steady. Then just at the cottages at whitburn PAul and Steve overtook me. So I thought i must be doing okay.  I heard someone say if we keep up this pace we will come i just under the hour.  So i tried to keep up with them.  When I got to Cafe thing at the beach Trish and Claire shouted me on.  It was a good boost.  Kept going but the sandwas hard.  A few people overtook me and thats when i lost the girl with the red and white vest. Got to the finish.  Nearly puked on Moyra ((Sorry)).  Looked at my GArmin. 59.27.  Official result 59:30.  Last years race was 1:06: so i am well chuffed with myself.  xx Unaffiliated 59:30 59:30 1:01:00 59:30 59.77

Mark-R Confirmed after senidng off late. Running with the good lady, not sure on the course - so will be pleased with 95 minutes for the pair of us. Careful if using this to bet though! Unaffiliated 57:38 1:33:20 1:35:00 1:33:20 32.56

Screeners Not a brilliant race for me, found running on sand very difficult and combined with the usual stomach cramps, didn't feel good at all.  Wasn't expecting to PB as just haven't been doing the training and my Plan B was just to finish and not be last so at least I achieved that.  I have just measured the route I took at 7.10.

TheScribbler Really enjoyable race. Tough going over the grass and getting the legs turning over after slowing down for gates and steps, but a good race. FERC 1:02:54 1:02:54 1:02:00 1:02:54 55.59
Vicki: Graceless Whippet Canny run, 5th L35.  Started out pretty steady and paced myself well till the last mile where I kicked on and passed around 20 or so other runners.  Pretty pleased with the result :D Jarrow & Hebburn AC 54:05 54:05 56:00 54:05 64.66
