Having successfully made it round on Tuesday night there was no excuse not to go to the last RR10 of the series at Hursley on Wednesday evening. I’d got soaked cycling home from work so was pleased that the sun was shining as we all drove back in. A friend had agreed to look after Emma and Duncan at the race so, for the first time in a long while, we both got to have a run. Neil was also out for the first time having joined Totton and had brought his family so Emma got to play with the girls. Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse and we all got a soaking. I nearly killed myself on the first lap trying to keep up with Claire Nichols as she moved up through the field but eventually gave up and settled in to a more steady battle with a Stubbington runner. Unfortunately he was ahead at the line but 18th was a respectable finish and I was a few seconds faster than this time last year. Christine also did well finishing 35th – not bad for her first and last race of the year.
