    Really well done, unfortunately those stupid people running around in bear costumes and the like think they have a divine right to go near the front at the start, it is the same to some degree in just about every race I've done. The good thing is a slow first mile really warms you up, yes in a 10k it will affect your overall time, but once you get to half marathon distance it should equal itself out over the whole run.

    ...and besides, unless you are going to finish in the top 50, it is the chip time that is the all important one. Really pleased for you, all systems go for the half now.

    I'm knackered after just reading about it.

    Pos is a bit of an unfortunate abbrev for those of us with our minds in the gutter!

    Fine result by an standard-considering where you were not so long ago it's a colossal achievement.

    Race# - 771
    Forename - Adam
    Surname - Abel
    Gender - Male
    GenderPos - 610
    Category - M-Open
    CategoryPos - 384
    Gun Time - 00:50:30
    Pos - 706
    Chip Time - 00:48:43

    So,if I'm reading it right, 747th person overall (out of 4508 finishers) on time, 706 person to cross the line after the gun, 384th in the male on time in open category (out of 1196) and 610th male overall (out of 2309)on time.
    I can cope with that.

    Surprised about that, I've got an older model (for the same reason, it was bloody cheap!) and it has an auto pause function, ahh well, you'll just have to get Charlie to time his poos better

    Anyway, back to the point at hand, still very impressed with that time for a first attempt, looking at that course it is overall hillier than the GNR as well, the GNR is generally reckoned as being a course with good pb potential which is why you get quite a few elite athletes doing it. Keep up the training and you could be on for something special come the Autumn!

    Cheers guys.

    Like I said Si, I have 4 different camelbacks, so I will use one of those rather than look a right spaz.
    Don't have to feck around getting a bottle in and out then, just lift the straw to my mouth.

    I don't think the FR 110 does auto pause. Its very basic, hence half the price of the rest of the range.
