Ashurst RR10

336As I’m now office bound whilst awaiting the baby there was no excuse for not attending this week’s RR10 down at Ashurst in the New Forest. As usual, I was running late and we arrived just 15 minutes before the start. It’s a while since I’ve raced an RR10 so decided to use fellow Southampton runner Eric Parker as my pacer. I did overtake him at one point but it wasn’t long before he came past again. My legs felt terrible – perhaps not surprising having run the past two days and then not at all for the preceding week. I was therefore pretty surprised to just squeeze in to the top 20 in the results as well as being the first IBM Hursley runner back. Christine took the camera out so you can see some more photos over on flickr.

    Send my thanks to Christine for the photos, I’ll have to make sure Im ahead of Diego next time shes got the Camera out! 😉 Though you’ll probably be three by the time of my next RR10.

    A few seconds later and I think you would have been. I guess it depends when you can next make one but the due date is the day before the next race!
