Lauren Stewart produced an extremely good debut marathon in Amsterdam on 18th October, with a chip time of 2:51.00 which ranks her 17th in the UK in 2009. She ran very even 5K splits of: 20.04; 20.04; 19.58; 19.57; 19.45; 20.20; 20.32; 20.49.
Update: Lauren has kindly told the website editors what was behind her very useful time and, as interestingly, her successful, even pacing.

Our teams produced two very sound performances at the National 6- and 4-Stage Road Relays in Sutton Coldfield today. Our men finished 20th and our women 21st in this very high quality event. With neither team suffering from an obvious weak link, Matt Barnes-Smith and Linzi Snow delivered our fastest runs of the day.
