Edinburgh to North Berwick Road Race

This was my longest race so far so I was quite daunted by it. I didnt sign up until the week leading up to it which was probably a good thing as I didnt have time to get wound up about it. The weather was lovely and you had a great view from the start at Portobello promenade round to North Berwick which looked quite far!. Mark very kindly gave Ngeme and me a lift from Penicuik and when we got there Helen was also there and it was nice to see Davy and get a few words of encouragement from him. We briefly saw Peter having a good stretch on the promenade.
The race was mostly flat and on pavements apart from a slight hill at Gullane that really drained my legs so the last 5 miles we tough for me.
There was refreshments laid on at the sports centre in North Berwick which were much appreciated. Very well done to Mark who knocked a few minutes off his time from last year.

The results:
Mark Snodgrass 10th 2.10.55
Peter Avent 13th 2.12.53
Sadie Kemp 130th 2.50.22
Helen Titchmarsh 182nd 3.06.11
Ngeme Ntuli 208th 3.32.38
