Basingstoke Brackenwood 5k

Last year I ran the Basingstoke Brackenwood 5K for the first time in 26:39.  Today I ran it again; my aim to beat my PB.
And beat it I did with a time of 24:52!  I am so pleased!

Having run a couple of different distances now, I think I prefer the half marathon where you can run it mile by mile, while the 5k I find just a bit too fast with no way to pace it, you just have to run as fast as you can for the whole thing.  But of all the races I have run, I have to say this is one of the best organised.  No queues for the toilets and the results printed out by the time you've caught your breath.  I realise some of this is due to the size, only 217 ran, but its things like this that make all the difference.
So run it again next year?  Maybe...
