Philippa's flying!

Nene Valley Harrier, Philippa Taylor, has enjoyed a successful week winning the Nottingham 5 and finishing third in the Heckington 10. The 48 year old Stamford based runner was within touching distance of her PB's in both races recording a time of 29:40 at Nottingham last Wednesday and 60:10 at Heckington on Saturday.

Taylor is enjoying her best form for a couple of years, and her 10 mile time was sufficient to see her move to the top of the national rankings in her age group, whilst her time over 5 miles moved her into second place. The England International also leads her age group rankings over 1 mile and 10,000 metres on the track, and 5k on the road. Taylor posted a 5k PB of 17:45 at Lincoln last month.
