We charged down to Wimbledon with bananas and energy and smashed the Wimbledon 5k road race. First 'official' race back since Covid and it was a beauty! 

We went in waves, and each member of the team went off seperately one minute apart, round the track, out the gates and straight up a big hill which none of us were really expecting (always check the course!). It was also nice to be able to cheer everyone else on as they were coming down the home straight ready to do the final lap of honor before finishing (as we were a minute apart). 

Overall, I think we came fifth (?) with some great times: Emma Burgess (19:14), Lisa Wenninger (19:17), Me (Kani Hinshelwood) 19:32, Catherine Airey (20:05), Sarah Dewhirst (20:59), Jo Gardner (21:47)

Very much looking forward to the Chelmsford XC next week!
