There were five LBAC runners who turned out on a very sunny Sunday to run the Bearbrook 10K, including Pete Mackrell, Adam Haylock, Kate Johnson, Sarah Daniels and myself.
After a poor run at the Thame 10K a few weeks ago, I had unfinished business. But me being me I had already started to psyche myself out, come Sunday morning I was imagining injuries that had not been there Saturday, regretting the mileage from the previous weekend and generally not feeling race fit. After arriving and getting into my somewhat anti-social pre-race routine I realised I wasn’t going to run well if I was expecting to do badly. So, positive mental attitude and a bit of Bruce Springsteen “Born to run”, was the way forward.
