blue (pete) Very wet and cold but a great race for me as I sneakily wanted to go sub - 2 on my first ever race at this distance.

eMpTy Rather a damp race and didn't hit target but ran a very fast 10m, 10m PB by about 1.5minutes. In end paid for the fast 10m pace in the last 3 miles but managed a course PB by 2 minutes and an overall PB by some 20 seconds. Denmead Striders 1:31:57 1:37:20 1:35:30 1:37:20 66.18
fetcheveryone Just back, and warming up / drying out nicely. Really happy to have scored a big PB, even if it was not the 1:4X I'd been thinking about. Knee had some really nasty twinges around 8 miles, but thankfully it went quiet after about a quarter of a mile. Hit the 10 mile marker at 1:25:00, so things look good for Maidenhead 10. Think I faded a bit after that, but it was lovely to see MsFetch and JPR at about 12.5 miles, and the usual support from #8 and the others at the finish. Lots of friendly faces around, including a very hairy PieNapper :-) FERC 1:44:49 1:48:27 1:48:00 1:51:56 51.79
Forest Runner Well, I was running with a calf injury - what do you expect? Bracknell Forest Runners 1:30:50 1:37:50 1:29:59 1:42:53 62.61
GAZGIB The way things have been going recently I would have gladly settled for this time before the race. But as it was I was flying around and at ten miles was on target to break 1:37 which would have been a PB. However just after 10 both my hips seized up and the pain was awful, so I had to drop the speed right off and painfully jogged home for the last 3 miles.

Jock Itch Enjoyed this one.  Conditions not good but went off like a train and managed to keep a good pace for a new PB.  Pulled my shoulder taking my vest off and injured my knee getting in the car ! I ask ya !! FERC 1:13:30 1:22:30 1:23:00 1:22:30 70.90

Leg End Nearly didn't get out of bed when the alarm went at 6:30 on a FOUL morning. But it was a BRILLIANT run. Delighted with my time. Ann (wife), Mike (son) and Debbie (his girlfriend) also had excellent runs.  PBs for Ann & Debbie;  my best since 1984 and Mike only one minute short of a PB. Position 1074 of 1681 finishers.  A splendid day. Sandhurst Joggers 1:46:11 1:49:34 2:10:00 1:53:16 62.25
MadJonny PB by over 60 secs and sub-1:50 for the first time ever.  Not feeling 100%, woke up feeling under the weather with headache and resting HR was high.  Ibuprofen works wonders though.  First mile was slow (9-45) due to crowds, but then managed 8 min miles up to 9 mile mark.  Slowed up a bit due to tiredness, but managed a quick final mile to sneak in under 1-50.  Felt sick with about 1/4 mile to go but it was worth it in the end.  Paid for it on Sunday evening - much more tired than normal & a bit feverish. Unaffiliated 1:44:49 1:49:44 1:50:00 1:49:44 53.31

Mooey Really pleased with my time today - as I haven't done any decent training runs this year. The event clock had me come in at 2:40 - so I'm going with my watch! Unaffiliated 2:27:50 2:27:50 2:33:00 2:38:33 41.77

nrg-b ॐ Using this as preparation for Rotterdam Marathon on 9th April 2006.
Superb race. Felt strong, in control not breathing heavy. Had more then enough energy at the end. East London Runners 1:28:00 1:28:00 1:28:00 1:28:00 66.75
The start is a bit narrow?

Must have lost several mins getting to the Road

Overall the weather was better than last year

Sir Moses Hill First race of the year and took things easy until around 10 miles when I felt great and upped to 7-min miles for the final three.  Not my quickest time but very pleased with my pacing and strong finish. Unaffiliated 1:34:51 1:34:51 1:42:00 56.84

Tappers Cold wet and for some strange reason cars drove through the starting line up. Ran as fast as I could too fast at start and hung in there for the last 10miles! Walton AC 1:34:22 1:37:18 1:39:59 1:37:18 60.68
The Croc A bit freaked out by the conditions,very wet and cold - though not as cold as last year, but overjoyed with my time. Started way quicker than I thought I could go and then held it together for the middle bit and slowed down to the pace I thought would do from the start, hardly textbook but 4 mins off my pb was worth the blisters.
