Lesley Barnes 22.27 pb
Hello from the USA!
On Saturday 24th April I did the Earth Day 5K race in Greer, South Carolina.  Chip to chip timing, and achieved 22.27, was 33rd out of 268, 6th lady, 2nd V40
It was exciting to do a race somewhere completely different, and because of the trouble with flights leading up to my trip I was totally unprepared and had to stop off on the way from the airport to buy shoes, socks, shorts and top!  The race started at 8.30 in the morning and was warm and humid, but not as bad as Flitwick the week before.  Fairly flat, I was able to just enjoy it and see what happened, so was pleased with my jet lagged result.  My two 2nd cousins were also taking part, so there was a bit of a family challenge set!  (Yes, I did come in before them!) There was a half marathon going on at the same time so there were a few supporters around, and the occasional marshal, and quite a bit of police presence.  Strange to see so many runners and not recognise any club kit! What was interesting was the organisation which was very low key - and Harriers are most definitely the best!
