Pretty impressed that I was 2nd in my age group at Park Run today Cool

Slightly less impressive when I realised that was from a field of 2 Laughing out loud

Good result! If you want to compare to the rest of the field - but adjust for age - you can look at / sort by the age grade %

I'm doing the Benfleet 15 race today - mix of road and trails with a hilly finish. I had shin splints for 6 months the last time I did a trail race at this distance so will be happy if I get round without injury

How did you get on?

Still no snow but just got my first half marathon in for the year. Great weather for it as no wind and kept the route as flat as possible so wasn't too painful.
