Percy Pud 10k race

Drizzly rain set in for the start of the race. Around 3000 runners took part. Had planned to run it easy as I’m tapering for next weekend. However, I made a good start and pushed on a bit especially on the return leg (it’s an out and back route).

Enjoyed passing runners but it took a lot of weaving about to make progress. Was also good to see (and chat with) around 15 VRs.

Lots of reaction to my Christmas Tree headgear, all positive. Liked the route, would run this again.

Just seen in my age category I was 34th out of 154 – very pleased with that.
