Yes, I have finally broken the 25 minute barrier!
The course was completely blanketed in mist today, no views from the top, you could hardly see the faster runners bearing down on you after the turn until they were on top of you. I managed to pass my nemesis (Kin, who also got a pb today) before hitting the gravel section but she passed me with 500m to go and I just couldn’t get my legs going any faster. The important thing is a third pb in a row and getting under than 25 minutes. I’l get her some time (but not next week as I’ll be in LA where they don’t have a parkrun so I’ll just run my own 5km)
I finished 83rd out of 234, was 9th lady and 3rd in my age category.
