Round Cumbrae 10 miles

09/09/2012

Sunday the 9th September saw Jacob Tangey travel to Millport to take part in the annual dash around Cumbrae island...

Despite overcast skies signalling the threat of rain, conditions were still surprisingly mild, so common consensus was that only two layers of clothing were needed. A tail wind and a time of 5:40 at the first mile mark indicated to Jacob a somewhat speedy start, however with the same tail wind on the second mile but with a split time of 7:22, it cast doubts in his mind as to course accuracy!

Jacob reports that on a nice flat course with only a few undulations, he settled into running at a good steady pace and was feeling comfortable. Hitting the 7.5 mile mark (plus or minus!), the once welcome tail wind turned to a head wind and as it always does, now seemed so much stronger! He continued, ''With at least a mile of this, things definitely slowed a notch with some serious vocal suffering! The last half mile picked up the tail wind again and it was a dash for home. A small climb 300 meters from the finish line further punished those suffering, before tea and cake at the town hall.  A time of 61.13 saw me 12th in line for the cakes... and they weren’t too shabby either!!''

Jacob.
