As it happened we weren't able to worry the front runners too much and the race was won by Shettleston's Wayney Ghebresilassie in 49:40. Full results here. Our results were:
Personally I am delighted to have dipped under the 1 hr mark by the smallest of margins. It was touch and go battling against tired limps in miles 8 and 9, and I had to dig really deep. I could see the clock counting up in the last 50m and was thrilled to get over the line in a sprint. I'd set the sub 60 as a goal for 2017 so it's nice when it comes off. It was also a blast from the past being at Strathclyde Park as I spend a huge amount of time on the water training and racing there two decades ago as part of the Edinburgh University rowing team - and they were there today as we racing around the outside.
