Final SLOW 2008-9 Street Race series event, at Pimlico, including Victoria and Belgravia. Lovely, flat area with lots of roads - most reminiscent of the LOK West End Street-O. For several legs I had to count off the number of roads I was crossing, and remember to head down the fourth or fifth one I crossed.

Despite my legs still aching from the half marathon on Sunday, I felt fine once I started running, and, although I never pushed the pace, I felt I had a good flow. I had some trouble at a couple of controls, it later transpired these were in slightly the wrong place due to a late revision in the map (but with the old clues being used).

Some excitement when running past Westminster Abbey - Tamil protestors were coming the other way and there was the sinister din of close-range police helicopters above. I had to try and drown this out to work out exactly where I was on the map.

Probably my favourite of all the Street-O areas this year. I'm hoping to organise the next one, in September in Bow.
