bedlam_g Feels like a chance missed to do a sub 37.  In the end I should probably be pleased after a really bad month of injury niggles.  Bellahouston Road Runners, Cumbernauld AAC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 34:01 35:17 37:23 72.42
Billy-Whizz-Haining Injuries and illness finally caught up with me, but at least i,m running again, i felt terrible from start to finish i hope i dont have a race like that for a while, oh well onward and upward. Colchester Harriers AC 38:03 38:03 38:00 41:07 74.32

claire@craigens Well if everything goes well Im hoping to smash my p.b - fingers crossed x Kilmarnock Harriers & AC 44:30 40:00 0.00
ClaireT Pleased with run, chuffed to finally break the 10K PB, an improvement of around 30s. Not sure my 'real' time as they didn't record my chip time only my gun time and other runners standing in front of me on the start line had a chip time 3 seconds faster so probably was 38.30. Like running in the heat, so I enjoyed the conditions, but did flag a bit between 5-6k feeling dehydrated and was turning each corner in hope the water station would hurry up and appear.  Well done to the many club mates and Fetchies who had good runs tonight. Victoria Park - City of Glasgow AC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 38:11 38:11 38:34 78.74

daviec Gun Time 38:17, Chip Time 38:12. Position 53/958. Category Pos 29/222. New PB, but don't feel I did myself justice. Was on 36.xx pace for the first 5k and hit a new 5k PB during the race. Felt comfortable knocking out 6 minute miles for ther first 3 - but lost it a bit between 5 and 6 miles and didn't want it enough to pick up the pace. Happy enough with a PB, but will be running hard at Killie next week and looking for a better time. Carnegie Harriers 36:20 38:12 37:30 38:12 69.97
Edmondo Despite a bit of a groin strain, I managed to keep a steady pace on a fairly flat Troon course and get a new PB. Temperature dropped a bit by start time which helped. Started a bit far back so got boxed in when the prom narrowed - in hindsight no bad thing as I was able to overtake a fair few as the race went on. Unaffiliated 35:28 35:28 39:30 39:02 69.69
El Del Not a good day at the office.  Felt lethargic, and legs heavy, then had a stitch for 2K near the end.  10th time I have run this, and slowest ever. Giffnock North AAC 34:59 35:31 37:41 76.51
gilly b  Oh dear, not as good as I hoped for, over a minute slower than last year. I really struggled 2nd 5k, too warm  - disappointed with time.

Gordo Struggled from early on but especially between 3-4k and again at 6-7k. Over two mins slower than PB which  was very disappointing. No real reason for poor run that I can work out. Need to put it behind me and hope for better at Clydebank! jogscotland 49:13 50:35 51:30 53:35 56.54

Jamis Dont think a PB is on the cards,going through with Keef and some of the guys. Should be a laugh if anything:)Suppose to run this last year untill a JCB digger turned up in my front garden 2hrs before the race. If you see a Hamilton Harrier says a big HELLO!!!!!

wil e coyote haven't run really since FLM due to injury so a nice run oot in the sleepy retirees resort by the sea will do nicely for a starter back



probs with leg during the race, had to pull upx3, but enjoyed the race and buzz of the event, masses of fun runners, great killie attendance as usual Ayrodynamic Runners, Loudoun Runners AC 34:30 44:23 42:00 44:23 62.93
