Race report - Flitwick 10k 

Nice to not have to worry about dashing out of the door at the crack of dawn today as it was the lovely local Flitwick 10k, just ten minutes up the road. 

Arriving to a very well organised race HQ I collected my number and spent a while rounding up all the available Harriers for a quick snap. Soon we were on the start line, it looked pretty busy and was a short while before I crossed the start line. My legs felts super heavy for the first few hundred yards and then, as if by magic they decided to cooperate, I used this to my advantage and sped up for as long as they would allow. The course included several lumpy hills which I was determined to not let me slow down, but alas they did, my counter measure was to fling myself down the down hill parts which I find evens out the pace! Annoyingly at 7k my shoelace came undone, stopping to tie it must have cost me a good ten minutes.

The marshalling was expertly carried out by a huge turnout of Flyers all screaming and shouting - wonderful. Somehow my Garmin was measuring miles, which makes no sense to me so I ignored it until 9km and then looked to see I was doing pretty well for me. I pushed it hard to the end and got a seasons best of 50.18, 30 secs off my pb and 8/76 in my age category. Quite a few were talking of PB's so I'm looking forward to reading and hearing about them. Results were texted before I even got to my phone, we got water and a banana and a nice gym towel as a mementoe.

A great little race perfectly executed by our local running friends. Big thanks to the lovely AFF.
