So, the EMF 10k, which is always a memorable race. I first signed up to do it in 2016, but then it turned out to be the wee bro’s wedding in Toronto the same weekend, and I obviously couldn’t be in two places at once, so I had to wait till 2017 before I could do this challenging race for the first time.
2017 certainly did not disappoint in terms of challenge – the 30°C weather, almost unheard of for Edinburgh, took care of that. This year was much more amenable with the temperature, and so not only did I take almost fifteen minutes off my time from last year, but I was only one minute and two seconds slower than the PB I set in Sunderland a fortnight ago. That’s pretty good going considering the ridiculous elevation of the EMF 10k and its steep climb up Arthur’s Seat!
Geth was only about a minute off his Sunderland time as well, so we’re both pretty happy today. Next up is the Blaydon Race in another fortnight’s time!
