Perfect morning up at Larne for the half marathon and was happy with my time of 1:47. One of the (many) things I love about this race is that us slower runners can see the leaders on their way back. Lovely to watch how they run. Kenny, I shouted over when I passed you. You were clearly in pain so well done on completing the race.
I'm in for Larne, Mags, so will look out for you.
I did Jimmy's last year and really enjoyed it, particularly the spread afterwards. They really spoil the runners.
Martin, I saw you crossing the start line on the Belfast Telegraph video report. You looked the part!
One2escape, you seem to be coming on well. Larne is one of my favourite races. I hope you enjoy it.
Kenny, you seem to be well prepared for Larne. I'm hoping to be able to get down to Carlingford this weekend for my first half marathon this year. It looks to be a nice scenic route.
