Great course and perfect conditions. Ran to a plan and had plenty left at the end, so could go quicker. Unaffiliated 1:22:22 1:23:39 1:24:00 1:23:39 71.34

Bolt Suffered with shin splints in both legs early on after going out too fast - but hung in until the pain subsided and felt better at the end. Harwich Runners 1:32:08 1:35:30 1:35:30 63.79
brotherjohn Had a few problems wirh my running past couple of weeks, so very pleased with todays run. Making good progress, pretty comfortable except for the last half mile. Excellent fast course and lovely day for running. Recomend to anyone looking for a PB. Great event.

EarlyRiser 22nd Jan. I've entered this against my better judgement. :-) Even so, I don't want to miss an opportunity this good (unless you're all lying about it being a flat fast course!) POST RACE: time estimate only, but will be another PB, if only by 20 seconds or so. Found I had the strength and endurance today, but not the basic speed over the last 5k to make the difference. But that's ok, I'm not in training for this distance yet. A very nice race! Well-organised and tasty cake. Good to see a few folk. Unaffiliated 1:33:37 1:33:37 1:33:00 1:33:37 68.99

Mylo Half marathon debut for me in preparation for FLM, aiming for a steady pace rather than flat out. Finished within 2 secs of my prediction - very happy with that and I would have thought I could go a fair bit quicker next year.

sonicp Cold has delayed training schedule by about a month. First time doing Gt Bentley.

Cold day but light wind. Quicker than expected but pulled muscle in my left buttock! Hamstring too tight? Colchester Harriers AC 1:26:10 1:32:51 1:35:00 1:32:51 67.25
Sporran First Half Marathon, so prediction is more a of a personal target :-)

Worked hard on maintaining overall pace to allow strong finish, this seemed to work as did not fade as badly as I have done recently, finished sub 2 so happy!! (Chip time) Dagenham 88 Runners 1:52:13 1:52:13 1:59:59 1:56:37 53.54

Ticker Official chip time 01:41:29. First 6 mile went like a dream, but I really had to push after mile 10, and the finish on grass made my tired legs feel even more sluggish. A  PB of around 15 minutes can’t be bad! Great race and perfect conditions. Well done to everyone who was there. Unaffiliated 1:35:04 1:40:26 1:43:00 1:41:29 60.52
Tom Tom Strange...I ran under the clock in 1.31.07, but they have my chip time as 1.31.10. Just sulking really, as I didn't manage a PB :P Brilliant race, though, and much better conditions than last year. Unfortunately, I got a stitch at 9 miles and never really clawed it back from there :( New 10 mile PB of 1.08.39 though, and I won county bronze in my age category, so not throwing too many dollies out of my pram ;) Apologies to those that bet on me, though. I tried!!*edit* Changed it to chip time, now official results are up ;) Harwich Runners 1:26:19 1:29:22 1:31:07 72.27

Vindicator A nice new PB, but mile 12 killed off a 1.31.xx time with a 7:15 mile and destroying any finish I could have mustered. I so would have liked to get the flat 7:00 mile. Next time, but it is going to hurt a lot! Harlow RC 1:28:30 1:30:12 1:33:00 1:32:08 63.69
