Jo Blogs - Wimbledon was tough wasn't it! Quality is silly now, especially since xmas. I was 38th at Mitcham and ran well. Must admit I was below par at Wimbledon, but didn't expect 76th! Really strong league now, shame Clapham have gone down.
CW - Would like to try and imagine where you came a cropper, hope you are healed up ok now. I must admit there were a few corners where I was treading gingerly! Yes yesterday was one of those where you start loads faster than you were planning to (5.35's instead of 5.50's)...and just manage to keep it going..we all have these races now and again. So unexpectedly ended up with 1.13.51 for 2nd place, 6 secs outside my PB (bit annoying). The presentations were in the main bit, near the start. Which leads me to..
Jooligan - We were discussing prizes? Now I'm not greedy (honest) but yesterday I got a little plaque, a hoody and a drinks bottle with some gels in it. This race gets 1,500 people plus paying £30 each! Bit stingy isn't it..but I suppose they don't really need faster runners to do it.
Good stuff at Wokingham, liked the reports, a gang from the Stevie G thread did it too, plus a few Herne Hill and Kent I know did it also
Cheers All - glad you agree about the prizes, luckily there was a feedback section, so they got some from me! Probably muttering about 'serious runners' as we speak. Trouble is, they don't really need faster runners. Also, many garmins had it at 13 miles dead - they had to change the course and may not have measured it correctly.
Probably won't run that one again
JB - I'm sure you will be back easily. Then it's trying not to be a yo-yo club!
TR - Cheers. I knew loads were going to do Wokingham, but I don't really do half's anymore tbh - I entered because it was local and would have been a good social with UDS and the LBAC lot.
I suppose I would have been looking at 1.13.30's or so if I had run at Wokingham (barring any mishaps), but the weather would have probably been crap if I had entered it
