Expecting a crop of Milton Keynes marathon reports, but people have
been out racing elsewhere too!
Eugene Nyunt finished the Belfast Marathon in 3.47 his third this
year, a lot better than his earlier Barcelona event, and only 3 weeks
after Vienna Marathon (14 April) in 4.03.
Nik Windle says: Very enjoyable Chalgrove 10k this afternoon despite
the heat. I remembered the suncream and took it nice and easy as I do
nowadays. Enjoyed a squirt from the kids water pistols on route, we
were keeping them busy. Come the small hill at 7k runners were wilting
all around while I just plodded on grinning away with a certain Simon
and Garfunkel ear-worm in my head that I hope didn’t leak out my
mouth….Position? Time? What’s all that about then!
Jenny ‘Dunleavy’ McNamara says:
Got a pb of 45.19 in the Glastonbury 10k despite running a hilly 7
miles the day before with my friend from the cheddar runners!
Whitstable 10k saw Christopher Caps and Keith Gilbert sally forth.
Christopher said: Bloody horrible! 46:31 was my chip time. Clearly
taken a too laid back, too much booze approach since Brighton. Went
off too fast and suffered severely from the heat. Even ended up
walking on the 8th K! Thought I was going to faint. Worst race in
ages. Going to ease off the drink and get a bit more focussed on the
running. Tough day but still a lovely course.
Keith Gilbert adds: Yes it was surprisingly warm. Need to adjust to
this, after so many snowy, hypothermic runs this year. I was 7 minutes
slower on my course pb, which I got last year.
Well done all… !
