Running 32:38  7.0 km (4:40 / km)
So that was tough. Went off on first leg for the team. Felt good for the first 5 minutes or so (in about 6th place) but then the teams in front slowly went away from me and then the teams behind started to catch up......
Managed to get lactic in my calfs and quads (a first for me) and then started dry heaving. Basically felt like a sack of spuds. The decent was not much better but at least the lactic acid dissipated.
Luckily I had 2 international runners in the team and they pulled us up to 5th place. This was quids in - 70 Euros each.
The event itself was amazing though - the whole town got behind the race and all the runners got fantastic support. A great experience.
