May 20th, 2012

Back to race pace again and this time in Stoneyford, Co. Kilkenny and the Stoneyford 10km run.

The first 2.5km was a bit funny as we ran up the street and then round some bails and down the street again and the crowd was a little too bunched to get around those bails, but once we hit that first hill the groups of people really got stretched out.

Nice course, well in fact it felt more down hill than up. The watch had me at 43:30 and from the results sheet [pdf] I had an official time of 43:35. Wow thats a personal best and some! I’m proud of that.

I placed 39th out of 335 runners/walkers/strollers. Kate also helped with the counting of the finishers at the end.

The only sour note was in the final 2km spotting a chap being picked up by an ambulance. He was panned out on the road, completely out of breath.
