A lovely local well organised 10 mile race.  Unfortunately again a  big issue with my gut again which led me to feeling very weak and lacking energy.  gutted to have finished 5th when I should have been close to 1st/2nd place losing my placing in the last 1.5 miles.  It was a dash for the line and a dash for the toilet.  Not my finest moment and frustrated having a limitation to 10 mile races was hoping to run well.  Ran 59.52 which should have been a 57/58 min race for me having trained really hard in the winter and being in good shape.
