Wednesday 17th May – John Carr Race 3

Report from Robin…

So we roll on into Race 3 of the John Carr Series and this time I get a lift there. Oh yes, I am saving these bad boys ( points to legs ). The scene is set when I arrive with various “Go Robin” banners and “We love you Outtersides” signs up all around.  I have a short chat with PB-er in waiting Stephen Boddy and Tom Lynch and after some short run chat we are placed in our pen. I spot fellow old dude Richard Herrington and am ready to re-write history. Off we go and I am immediately into my stride ticking off those k like only I know how. I am enjoying things a lot and am chasing down some familiar faces ( or behinds to be more specific ). Craig Shearer, Sam Clegg, and Tom Adams are all there as well as Sarah Garbutt. Tireless Kevin Ogden is there. So I carry on and find some rhythm. At the turn I am electric, and soon find myself in Mr Will Kerr’s slipstream. The hill beckons and I am feeling the pain, but not too much. Just a bit.  A smidgeon.  But I have some gas left so I turn it on.  And down the hill I go.  Through the plinth section and over the tape in 16:51. I turn round and spot Tom crossing the line in another PB-17:48 with Stephen Boddy PB-ing also in 19:40. Billy Rayner, having “nothing in the tank” after Saturday’s Leeds Half finished in 23:56. Special mention to Donald Buffham who finished with a 26:06. Evergreen Tom Adams won the race in 15:31. Top series this. I reckon I’ll do it next year.
