(injured) shoes: Asics Running shoes

with Ben Mangen... was there for ages cos' i arrived at 12.15 thinkin my race would be at around 1.30 as the races began at 1. started gettin hungry as i hadn't eaten lunch because of the race. finally my race started at 3 o'clock!!

Running 20:34 [5] 4.5 km (4:34 / km) +200m 3:44 / km
(injured) shoes: Asics Running shoes

tough race!! top guys really fast and they didn't really slow..

Ben won his race and said the lads in his race had been quite slow but consistent and he pulled away towards end

happy with time.. but not neccesarily with place.. think i was 14th

1 guy really stole the show.. legged it at start with big lead after gradual climb then just kept opening it up
