"Pie and Peas 5"

The first of two races this week and a new race for me. The Pie and Peas 5 is both a Cheshire Grand Prix Race and part of the Harrier's Club Champs, it is just a pity I ran as if I had eaten the pie before the race rather than after as I ran to a personal worst 37.10 for a five miler!

Humid 26c conditions on an undulating multi terrain course didn't help but even so it was a pretty poor show. Starting towards the back of a 300 runner field I had to work too hard in the first two miles to get a decent position although in the end I did manage a top half finish and earn a few points for my troubles.
