Maybe I shouldn't worry, but as a plodder and a half marathon virgin, it does scare me a bit that there'll now be even more super speedy runners at Wilmslow
Or will there be just the same ones, I ummed and arrred for ages before plucking up the courage to enter and now I'm worried they'll be even more snooty if I don't manage my hoped for under 2 hours.
Alan is right. Bristol hosted the HM champs in 2007. I had the good (or bad) fortune to run almost exactly the same time both then and this year and there was precious little difference between my finishing positions (although yes, 2008 was the year I finished nearer the front).
Edit: actually, I've just rechecked, and bizzarely my lady's placing was better in 2008 but my overall placing was worse, so lots of fast men ran this year! What do you know?!!
