I don't usually blog my sport related stuff on here, that's all on another site, as it's really very tedious usually.

However, this is quite interesting.

I competed on Sunday against a crowd of ~30,000 people, including Paula Radcliff, in the Nike 10K RunLondon race. The track in Hyde Park loops around a bit, and I actually saw Paula running towards me at that point (she would have been ~2Km ahead of me at that point)

The official result, which tallies with my own timing, was 45m 07s, which is nearly four minutes faster than last year, and which I'm really pleased with. I know I can go faster too, so I'm aiming to beat it again next year.

Placing 1850 in a race may not sound like much, but that means more than 28,000 people were slower than me, and that sounds much better :-)

Update: A 5K run on 25/11/05, time 22:04.

Update: Another 5K run on 29/01/06, time 21:45.
