Wexford 10km

April 26th, 2014

At last really feel back on track and this run in Wexford town has come at a great time in my schedule. It was an early start to get to Wexford but it was nice to be able to relax once on location and to grab a fantastic parking spot close to the finish line.

There was a great buzz about the Talbot Hotel which is near the starting area and I was a little surprised at the number of familiar faces at the start line.

I managed to grab a nice position at the start avoiding the big crowds of people and once off I got into a steady rhythm very early into the race and really just took it from there.

In fact the majority of the race was quite lonely I had carved out a bubble between those ahead and those behind and it wasn’t until the last 2km that a chap really pushed me, which was great really.

There was plenty of encouragement from the crowd in the last 500 metres and I brought it home in a time of 42:13 which was two minutes quicker than what I did in 2012 (44:12), which I have to say I’m super happy with. Also place 23rd out of 515 runners, which isn’t too shabby either.
