Top 10 Finish in Love Run 10K

So had my first race of the year yesterday morning in Battersea Park and the results are in. My preparation wasn't great after I ended up having to do a sprint to get my train, which I should have been saving for the finish line. Was pretty happy with how it went though as I managed to keep my pace up between 3:30 and 3:50 per km for the entire race. Only disappointment was the fact that I was battling with 2 guys for most of the race, nip and tuck, all over-taking each other a few times - then as I was behind them the finish line crept up on me. So I didn't start my sprint finish until about 50m to go! And I ended up finishing right behind both of them within a few seconds. But good start to the year anyway and I've learned from it for the next race.

Position: 9th/621
Time: 38:05
