New PB. The start was funny. Twice the same guy got the starting instructions wrong, just lucky that second time round no one was listening to him after he caused the false start in the first place! Second time I've run this race and I'm still deciding whether I like this one, the course is best described as testing. Other than the start, well organised and marshalled and plenty of water in perfectly sized bottles. Well done all.
Woohoo PB!!! As always a pretty well organised and enjoyable race although something has to be done about the walkers and their IPods. Going up the big hill on the 2nd lap it was easier to play chicken with the on-coming traffic than weave in and out the hundreds of lapped walkers oblivious to runners trying to pass. Farcical false start, the countdown started 5,4,3,2,1 what comes next usually GO... but not in EK, the Councillor starts his own countdown at 3, 2.. but everyone went on 3.
3rd female so very pleased with that. Disappointed with my time as I know this course so well and had an outside hope of a PB. Started off well, 6.19, 6.19, 6.20 then missed mile 4 marker and by mile 5 had slowed and then I slowed a little bit more. Was able to pick up the pace from mile 10 as I often do and passed some people in the final mile. Held on for position once I knew the PB wasn't there but had no idea how far behind the 4th lady was so that kept me going. Stomach sore from mile 8 to the end and feet sore too. Well organised race as ever and nice to get a long-sleeved t-shirt and glass 10yr anniversary memento.
Was running great on first lap, but struggled from 10 miles and really struggled up the long hill. Never mind best time this year and i had to stop for toilet and walked a bit.
Have gone down with shingles so might not make it. UPDATE: 1:31:03 watch time.
Watch time. Felt good after a dark spell in running since FLM. Aimed for under 1.30 so happy.
Ran today with sore ankle so quite pleased i managed to survive it in one piece, wanted sub2hr and got 2 hrs dead on, how rubbish is that??!!!
