Jack Crawford 10k

13th January 2007
Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow
10km canal bank race
Fairly horrible weather. Cold, windy and raining. Muddy and slippy in places. Ran pretty much according to plan. Tucked in with a small group for the section from Cadder Bridge to Balmore Road. This gave a massive advantage in terms of wind protection, and after Balmore Road Bridge I felt reasonably fresh from there to the end, and just managed to hold off the final challenge from Paul Thompson. Allan Adams won the race in 32:31. A slow time for him given that he was running into the wind on his own. First lady was Lesley Chisholm of Springburn Harriers in 38:23. I finished 24th in 36:26.
