    Super performance Kate, and great pacing...your pal must be over the moon!

  9. Kate Carter

    Alas Paul no!! We couldn't meet up because the start pens were separate. I ran with friend though. And coach said by email "no faster than 3'22/3'23 so I should get an A for my homework ...

  10. Paul Roome

    Oh no! Dare I ask...did they manage 3.30...? You're right tho, Coach will be very pleased with that :)

    Fab run Kate and looks like you had an amazing time! How did Bob and Sophie get on? Nice one for keeping within The Boss' limits!

  17. Pete Barton

    Well done Kate! Great run! The medal looks good, but the ribbon is sublime. I could almost be tempted to run a marathon if

  18. Pete Barton

    ....I received something like that!

  19. Kate Carter

    You should see the towel we got Pete! Will add a picture later :) Tara, Sophie had a blast and did similar + 25 minutes on race pace so c. 3'50. Bob didn't have such a good run alas, think he did 3'42 - start was really congested and it was impossible to catch up

    Must be nice to be able to cruise a big race like that, under instruction. Takes any stress out and leaves all the enjoyment! Brilliant all round.

    Fantastic run Kate. Gorgeous medal and a towel??? More races should give out commemorative towels.

  24. Kate Carter

    They should. To paraphrase Douglas Adams, A towel is about the most massively useful thing a runner can have 😜

  25. Tina Chantrey

    Well done Kate 😊
