Portsmouth Promenade 5k (race 2 of 3).    Wednesday July 1st. 7:30pm.

Adopting a hot pace on a hot evening, I finally managed to achieve what has proved to be a long standing ambition, to run a sub-19minute 5k, but only just, crossing the line in 18 minutes 57 seconds for a new PB, now I hope to develop sub 19 min consistency for the distance.
Also running Dave Arnold, who was the next runner home after me, in 19 minutes 11 seconds. Although not back to his normal standard, this was an improved preformance compared to some of his previous outings of late.
Sidney DeLara  18mins 57secs  50th (overall) v50 4th.
Dave Arnold.    19mins 11 secs 51st (overall) v45 6th.
 169 runners completed the course.
