Ealing Bling

Ealing Bling

Hi All

Just a quick check in with the obligatory post-run bling shot from this morning's Ealing Eagles 10k in Gunnersbury Park.

I didn't run as fast as I'd hoped (52.47) but I had a great time - the marshalls and supporters were great, I managed a sprint finish which I always enjoy and the sun was shining in West London. I'd hoped to get closer to 50 minutes and set off with the 50m pacers but they got away from me near the start and I never caught them up again - despite running the first 5k in 25.06, which I was super pleased about.

I got in a nice easy running rhythm, which I enjoyed - it was nice to hear one marshall say I looked "comfortable and relaxed" and another said I was "smooth" but I evidently sacrificed a bit of speed in doing so. I think I might have tired myself out a bit hanging around at the start - I was there far too early.

Still, it was a great run and a real pleasure and I'll definitely be back next year.

Hope everyone's enjoyed their weekend running,

  • well done , very nice bling and a great time :D

  • Thanks Rob - I've just noticed that, without thinking I've showered, changed and then *put the bling back on*. That's not normal is it?

  • haha very normal for a runner :D

  • Great job. Well done. Nice bit of bling there ☺

  • Thank you!

  • Well done AHS, brilliant time!

  • Cheers OG!

  • Well done! Yet more bling!!!! I think it's really funny that men should be so mad on the bling. Shiny, shiny things.

    Great stuff! You did brill by the way. Here's to the next one ey. I trust you have another one in the offing.

    You weren't on your own out there racing today. Lots of C25kers were whizzing around the place, me included.

    Go us!

  • Cheers Miss W! My next race booked isn't until July 19th and I really want to do one or two before then - must consult the Runner's World calendar.

  • Well done. Brilliant time :)

  • Thank you!

  • That's a fabulous time AHS! Go you! Can't see the bling too clearly but you look very happy!

  • I'm a happy dude. Thank you!

  • Well done! Sounds like a good run today.

  • Thank you - it was great, I'd recommend it to any Londoner looking for a friendly 10k.

  • Well done Acton !

    Blimey, that is a serious bit of bling !

    Very good time too, Fantastic achievement ! xxx

  • Thank you!

  • Well done AHS.

    Just as well they don't give you the bling before the race - that thing would surely cause a back injury.

  • It is a bit big!

  • Nice bling but the hat's pretty impressive too! ; )

  • :)

  • Ha ha, yes , Wow that is a big hat ha ha :-) xxx

  • That's a gong! Good for you!
