We all have our targets going into the 3 Peaks and Team JMC’s Phil Simcock’s was to better his PB by just over ten minutes and get inside a 3 hr 30 (Elite) finish time.  All the signs were good and the day couldn’t have been better…

My new’ focus’ for the race had worked and I smashed my previous personal best time, however crossing the line and being handed my time slip I was disappointed. I’d finished in 3 hrs 31 minutes and 39 seconds, so I’d just missed out on an elite time. This shouldn’t really have bothered me, but it did. I was convinced I would do it and my Garmin all the way round was telling me I was on target. To miss out by a small margin is so frustrating.
