John Tovell Great race, great result.  My target was to beat 1h 50m and to achieve this by keeping clear blue water between me and the 1h 50m pacer.  Felt nice and strong until mile 9 when the pacer caught up with me.  Then I had to dig in and it became quite painful!  Really great support all the way round, this event has got better since last I did it. Sandhurst Joggers 1:42:24 1:47:34 1:49:08 64.15
johnnyagain Perfect racing conditions, sunny and a nice temperature. I had a very poor preparation for this - less than half the mileage and virtually none of the quality work that I would normally do. Mostly due to two heavy falls and crocking my back. My expectations were low but I surprised myself. I didn't really believe that I could do a good one until about 9 miles, which tells me that I could actually have done better. Nevertheless - dead chuffed! (Vet 50 pb) Ludlow Runners 1:27:48 1:32:55 1:40:00 1:32:55 71.35

mystique100 (a) bandaged up my injuries, but they started hurting after mile 2 (of 13.1) 
(b) The 1hr50mins pace maker I was following was speeding up and slowing down erratically, had enough and did my own thing at mile 7
(c) Mile 10 realised that I had gone off a little too fast, not able to achieve the goal of 1hr50mins, Felt as if I was now going backwards passing only the folks who had stopped or were walking ;-)

...but still managed a 'reasonable' time or 2hr:4mins. Under the circumstances I am happy. Getting ready to put a full pack of ibuprofen gel on my aching parts and will look for the next 10K and the next half marathon and what crackpot scheme exists to aid my weight loss goal ;-) Unaffiliated 1:40:04 2:04:36 1:55:00 2:04:36 47.89
