    First F35, enjoyed it. Just let one lady get past me in last half mile, then couldn't close her down! Really enjoy this race.

    I enjoyed it, a great course, with lots of support from locals and my fellow Rothwell Harriers along the route. A great atmosphere.

    10.0 On Sunday I was lucky enough to run Hawassa Half marathon in Ethiopia. I ran in the masses race, and surprisingly I was first lady! It was a great course, three slightly different laps, partially along the lakeside. It was humid, and at altitude, but a memorable run. The only half marathon where two monkeys crossed my path! There was a lot of encouragement from locals along the route, and it was amazing to receive my prize from Haile himself, after the race.

    In short: Brilliant atmosphere, fantastic support. Not quite a PB, but my fastest London. Great to see Tony at around 6 miles!

    In full: Ran well until around 18 miles, then started to slow. Fantastic event, although I forgot just how hard a marathon is (despite this being number 11!). It never gets any easier! I am still planning the next one though...

    In short: Great run - fast and mainly flat. Gorgeous weather - enjoyed it.

    In full: Paced it well, thanks to my fellow Rothwrll Harriers; Pete and Sam. Their families were brilliant supporters along the route too.
    Great marshals, great route, brilliant buffet afterwards. I like the bag too!

    A PB, and felt really good. Perfect running conditions. A great event, and very well organised - well done everyone!

    8.0 Brass Monkey, York. Strong winds blowing us sideways most of the route, 1.34.37, not a PB but much faster than last years' race. Pleased with the time and pleased to feel good all of the way round. Very comfortable, which gives me confidence to attack the rest of VLM training!!

    Pleased with the time, I enjoyed it. Not a PB, and not fast enough for the 1.30 bus, but 6 minutes faster than last year.

    I am hoping that the ladies technical t-shirts come in to stock soon too - there only seems to be L and XL left at the moment.

    Am loving the show and keen to support it.

    Me too. My PB is at Brass Monkey 2010 - 1.30.05. I will see over the next couple of weeks igf I'm sharp enough. But I'd like to give it a go!

    It was great - my favourite race! Great atmosphere, and tough, but fun course. 20 seconds faster than last year. Course PB for me!

    8.5 Fantastic atmosphere at Great Ethiopia 10k. It was difficult to run at my pace though, with 36000 runners, and no start pens!Ten minutes slower than usual. Hundreds took short cuts down sidestreets and were walking, and stopping to dance to the bands en route! The route was undulating along dusty, uneven roads, but the locals were very encouraging and I saw some fantastic sights along the way. A great experience. I even got to meet Haile and Richard Nerurkar at the pasta party! Loved it.

    Slow time, but fantastic atmosphere. The start was more like a riot than a race!36,000 runners, lots taking shortcuts,was difficult to run!

    I enjoyed it, as I felt like I'm coming back! Not a PB, but I felt stronger than I have recently. A great event, and great conditions today.

    8.0 First race back after Chester marathon, and after having a month of being poorly from having a yellow fever travel jab.
    It's not a PB, but I felt good, and if I'd tapered, would have been even faster! Bring on more winter training!
