Hornsea 1/3rd  Marathon - 12 April
After a great run in Lincoln three weeks earlier, I was hoping to break the hour on this 8.74mile course.  Despite a good first half (with the first mile run in 6:24!) a strong head wind for a chunk of the second section made it tough and I came in in 1:00:32.  Thanks to David Morrison for motivation round the course

Askern 10 - 9 August
A fairly warm day, I started OK but after 4 miles it went down hill very fast!  (Me not the course).  An undulating course - I just seemed to lacvk energy and had stomach cramps and ended up going from a possible sub 70 minute run to finish in 76:25.  I’ll have 3 points though!

Beverley AC Handicap Series 2015
Beverley Athletics Club run what's called a handicap league for members. This is usually based on up to 12 races of 10k, 10 miles, Half Marathon and some other distances. For each race run, we're allocated a "handicap" time. This is based on our previous 3 performances. According to the finishing time you then have against your handicap time, you get points. The nearer your handicap, the more points! And if you beat your handicap time, even better! The person who beats their handicap time by the most is deemed the winner of the handicap race (as opposed to the race winner, who is the fastest runner over the distance!).  At the end of the year the person with the most points from their best six races, which most include 2 of 10K and 1 over 10K, wins the series.

As the year progresses I'll put an update on each of the races:
Ferriby 10 - 25 January

Having run on New Year’s Day a 9.5Km race, this was my second of the year.  Not as cold as last year, but the usual negative split as I picked up the pace after 5 miles and with mile 7 being my fastest.  However, my time was slightly slower than 2014, to come in at 1:13:19, just ahead of my target and earnt me 6 points.
