The Dinky Diva diasppeared ahead of me right from the start but had a couple of friends with her. She decided to stay with them and walk when ever one of them needed to as we hadn't got anyone waiting to meet us at the finish and she was worried about standing around on her own. Despite this she still managed 37.5 minutes!
I would definitely do it again and have spotted 2 more 5km runs in the area this Autumn. However, any running will have to stop for the next few weeks as some how I have managed to detach my big toe nail during the race. I knew that my running was bruising it but perhaps all the heat on Sunday finally did for it. A bit of time to heal and then I might have to invest in professionally fitted running shoes.
