Feeling better than last year where I faded I hit the start line with Emily Wicks back from her baby last year.  Wasn’t sure what shape she was in so I ran from the front, the last 4 miles though she did push the pace and I started to feel unwell and ended drifted just by 1 second into 3rd place.  I know there is a 58 min time in my legs on the right given day, today wasnt meant to be and finished in 59.44 and about 40 seconds down on my pb.  Certain places I just dont seem to run well at and seem to be jinxed at this race although I dont mind the course.
