My first ever attempt at starting a thread with a poll!

Okay my first race since October is on Sunday and I've put some weight on - I may not be on top form but I'm definately hoping/expecting to be faster than this time last year.

Race Facts
This race is a 12k undulating course titled "Not the Roman IX" using the same course as last year which I completed in 54:57... (see http://www.richardsimkiss.co.uk/running/roman07.html for Richard's official (if not a little sad) race report)

The race in October was a 10k Cross Country where Richard managed a new 10k PB of 40:53.
Just as a bit of a laugh, i'd be interested to see what you guys think my finishing time might be this year?...

:)

Official results not out yet but I *think* it was in the 47:00 - 47:59 category - As per usual I completely forgot to stop my watch as I finished, lol.

Over the moon with the run though, couldn't have gone better for me! Finished 12th out of 500 odd - A HUGE improvement over last year! :d

I would've voted that you'd get mis-marshalled, become completely lost, stop to ask for directions, mug a passing toddler, and eventually finish in 4th place on your newly acquired tricycle...
...before being disqualified for porridge-doping. :d But there wasn't a category for that.
... That didn't happen!? :eek:

Oh. :embarrassed: Well done then! Always nice to see some improvement and progress for all the effort, eh? :d

Thanks for the praise everyone, it really has given me such a lift!!! It was just one of those days when everything comes together as you'd like it too, except I didn't expect to manage sub 4min km's at all! I tihnk I could probably run the race another 4/5 times and not manage the same performance.

Thrown in for good measure was a PB as I crossed the 10km marker! :d

Thanks again for all the praise everyone... I don't think i've stopped smiling since Sunday! Official results are out and I was 12th outta 592 finishers in a time of 47:11... if I could only knock the same amount of time off by this time next year I should win! :p
