AlB A breezy day - but nice for running.  Didnt like the bit of course change that included running along the gravel part of the phoenix way.  My watch time read 42.33 (taken from the start) the official time was 42.37 - gun to chip and even people at the very front felt that the timing was out by a couple of seconds over!
Still - got a cup for 1st supa vet lady - although that was a bit 'askew' and tacky & we came 1st ladies team too. The guides tea and cakes were fab after. Well organised and friendly race - thanks thame runners & cpm.    Unaffiliated 41:16 41:16 43:00 42:37 76.13

libra (Watch time) wow - accurate to within 3 seconds of predicted time. Actually probably went better than expected but paced badly. Wasn't expecting nasty gravel track at the end and really struggled after that. Cool fan in goody bag, though (plus 8 identical keyrings - v useful...!) Unaffiliated 44:02 47:00 48:49 48:46 65.94

Somebody The worst race I've ever done! The water station was already packing up by the time I got there, which made me feel as though I was invading their time just by being there (how inconsiderate of me). Some of the marshalls couldn't even be bothered to tell me which direction to go (I had to ask). I had to ask for a goody bag and t-shirt when I got to the finish only to be told that they only had extra large left, and I had to find my own water at the finish too. Considering I pay as much as the people at the front of the field, I expect the same standards. Grrr. Rant over, off for a shower. Does anyone want a humungous t-shirt?

Ultra Sparkly Bridget (USB) Not a PB but a respectable time for 2 weeks after the South Downs mara.  Rhythm interrupted slightly by a woman who turned her car through a gap in the runners in the 2nd K. Buckingham and Stowe Running Club 53:59 57:31 57:31 56.41
