The Lostock 6 sort of crept up on me, but it was great to get out in a race after a snowy winter. I had been worried about pace. I have done a few long slow runs over the last few months and many more short slow runs on icy roads and the treadmilll. As soon as I arrived at the registration I could tell it was going to be a good event. I think everybody was just glad to see a fine day, which despite the weather forecast was dry.

My Garmin time will be about 10 seconds short of the official time due to operator error on my part. Nevertheless I did the first kilometre in 4:11 which is astonishing for me. More astonishing for me was that I only took more than 5 minutes for two of the kilometre splits. I saw many friendly faces and was particularly grateful for the shout I got from a fellow parishioner of St Thomas of Canterbury on Lostock Junction Lane as I plodded up THAT hill. "Look he's smiling!" I heard one person shout. Maybe I am a bit mad, but more likely it was down to the encouragement of the spectators at that point. Thank you! I am waiting for the official time but I am pleased with my unofficial time of 46:28.74. Not too shabby for me!!

Gun time according to the officials was 50.01, my time from crossing the start line to finish line is as seen and thats what I'm stick to
