Marlow 5 – 13th May “Sam Wins Local race again to retain her title”

by Sam Amend - 14th July 2012 | General News

After what I would say was a disappointing London Marathon this year in April, I had to move on quickly into a more positive frame of mind.  Next stop was planning my  next races including  the training for my next Marathon in September “Berlin”.

Marlow 5 has become a regular for me, whilst it has sharp turns and humid it is always a course I find hard to reflect a true PB… I like the fact its local!  Finishing 14th overall and 1st lady by over 2 minutes in a time of 28.55 I walked (actually) ran away very pleased.  This was  over a minute quicker than last year’s results  A well organised race and will be back again for 3rd time lucky!

The whole of this years training to date has either produced me a course PB  overall times in that distance.  My ultimate goal is still to run my 2hrs 40 marathon
