So there is very little to add except - it was hot, very hot, and a lot hotter than the cancelled race in February due to the snow- compare and contrast these two here:

Month End Look Back
As it's the end of the month - here's a quick list of the last few weeks that you might want to go back and check yourself and remember how well you did. You might like it that little bit more now too !
Was it your PB race ?, was it the best one of the year so far ? or were you a survivor at the Brutal ? Please remember we can only keep images online for 3 months before we have to make space for new events - so don't get caught out and get yours today:

I was recently reminded that this years Brighton 10k is also the Sussex 10k championships - and as ever it always fills up early. Yes I know it's on the 18th of November - but you can never be early enough when it comes to entering your favourite and regular races - so go and get that entry in now and sleep well for another 6 months knowing it's sorted, plus of course - club league points:
Next weekend on the Sunday 3rd of June is the Seaford Half marathon - http://www.npslions.co.uk/halfmarathon/halfmarathon.htm - the race is almost full and no entries on the day - get in there now ! We've donated almost £100 over the past two years to their charity work gained from sales of photographs at this race, so here's hoping we can continue to do this.
As ever we will also be at the Raw Energy Pursuits Arundel Triathlon on Sunday - one of the most picturesque locations you can have a sprint tri - along with the excellent organisation afforded by Mick and the REP team it is also a tough cycle course and a real test of Triathlon Ability. There are limited entries left as I type - so get over and get in - even if it is just for their now legendary cool T-Shirts they are turning out from their events, and did I mention that the race photos are free to download ?
Once you've recovered from that and don't fancy the street party in your road, you can go and join in the Jubilee 10k , 5k and fun run at Godalming on the Bank Holiday Monday - organised by allabouttriathlons - and if you're early enough you might even get to meet Sophie and Edward apparently :
Alternatively you might want to hide from the whole Jubilee experience for a bit longer than a 10k - so you have the opportunity to do just that for at least 2hrs and 5minutes (if you're quick) is there by entering the Kent Road Runner Marathon :http://www.kentroadrunner.com/
It's at a massive new cycling facility - so it has wonderful smooth tarmac and great facilities, and the bikes are banned for the race - so some might say it's going to be even better. Have a look at the website - all it needs is a pool and you'll have an all in one triathon facility as well. Truly an amazing facility.
On the tuesday - you can rest. Nothing is happening except the Queen taking an extra day off work and here in the office we will be indexing through images - so you can think of us working very hard, or prepare yourself for the Worthing 10k on Wednesday evening at 7:30pm
Hopefully the new course won't be as windy as it was last year !!
So there's a bit of light reading and link surfing for wednesday morning in the office, plus remembering just how good you looked last month in that race you did...
I have the joy of a trip to London in the afternoon (spoken as an ex-commuter) so I'm hoping it's not too hot on the rush hour back, I've had enough of those to last my lifetime thanks...
As it gets to the end of the month - remember that it's almost half term too, so don't take the kids to school by mistake next week and don't go into work on the Tuesday unless you really really have to (like us, although I might try to get a lie-in despite the kids).
Until next time, and enjoy the weather
