Hi everyone!  Training for VLM too.  Not sure about whether or not to 'race' the HM or just use it as a training run... What's the weather like in Norfolk?  Here in Sheff it's lovely but windy..

Been pretty mild and pleasent here in Norfolk the last few days, the sun is making regular appearances now!  Forecast is for a pretty decent day on Sunday at the moment.

Yep, weather is looking good. I don't really care to be honest as long as it's not too windy. Now I've said that it will be a hurricane!

Good luck everyone. I hope PB's all round.

Well I got my PB. 1:36:25. How did everyone else get on?

My first ever half marathon, got 1:51:10, absolutely chuffed to bits (thought my best was likely to be 1:53), what an amazing feeling!

Round in 2hrs 2 mins. Very happy, PB by 16mins!!! Could not have got better weather. Same again in November?

My first ever half marathon done it in 2:09:09 so quite chuffed considering I wasnt able to train for 6 weeks after chrimbo, really enjoyed it although the 1 1/2 mile walk home was a bit challenging.

Well done guys, looks like it was a great day all round, good weather and PB's everywhere!  I'll definitely be back in November too.

Had a great time and another PB here (2:00:27!!)  Was pleasantly surprised by the turnout in the villages we went through - that was a welcome boost.  Unlike most people it wasn't the hill that got me but the tiny bit of sunshine/heat we had!!  Must get acclimatising for VLM....

Congrats on the PB Mr Spoons. You finished 2 places ahead of me!!

 Well done everyone who ran, especially if you got PB's. The new course is quick, my fastest two HM times are now this half marathon so hope to have another crack at it later this year.

 Agree that the atmosphere seemed superb this year, lots and lots of support around the course!

 Now for the big one......my first London marathon!

Good luck at VLM Nick. Hopefully I'll finish 2 places ahead of you again

Haha, that's fine with me so long as you finish sub 4 hours, that's my target and although completing a marathon is an achievement in itself I think I'll be a little disappointed if I don't break 4 hours.

 Best of luck to you as well!

4 hours should be a breeze if your half was 1:36. I'm going for 3:29.
