Gloucester 10k – Sunday 28th October 2018

by Sam Amend - 28th October 2018 | General News, Race Reports

With some back to back racing and the “ Clock also going back”  and a frost on the ground anything could happen today.

I wasn’t particularly high spirits  getting up in the morning and knowing that I had a long drive and to support Norman ( my coach)  and his event.  I managed to get there an hour to the start, picked up my race number  and disappeared for the warm up and also say a quick hello to Emma Stepto who was managing the team from Cornwall AC, someone I hadn’t seen for a while and always great to catch up with since our trip to Toronto Marathon 2012.  During the race which was very busy with over 800 +runners.  The pressure was off knowing there were some speedy runners and I paced the race well, continued to run through the field finishing a comfortable 6th place in 37.09 which is the fastest and a season best for the year.
