Next on the racing agenda was a quick 10km race with Mike & family in Glastonbury....the inaugural Round the Tor. The race took place on the 6th May, only a week after completing the Bracknell Half, which is my excuse for Mike beating me.

If you check the official results, you'll find that I'm not actually listed, as I ran under the name of a boy from Milfield school, where my brother teaches. Anyway, I crossed the line in 50 minutes 54 seconds according to the official clock, although I made it 4 seconds less. Mike finished the pretty hilly course in an impressive 47 minutes & 8 seconds....he claims he lost me at the start and thought I was in front of him, which is why he pushed on with the quick pace.

All three boys (Daniel, George & Alfie) completed the Fun Run event on the same day, although Alfie needed a little assistance from his mother and sat in the pushchair all the way round. Official results for the fun run are listed here.
The 2013 race will hopefully bring about a return fixture where I'll be sure to beat Mike and perhaps even set myself a new PB.
