In short: I'm coming back for the hat-trick next year(completions that is not wins's) In full: First off,
I would like to thank god that it didnt rain, although it was windy it didnt interfere to much with the race, seems like the problems from last year were ironed out and for me it went like clockwork, the buses done thier job and the rest seemed to follow, slight change of route this year and with the new cycle path open it meant that the road didnt need to be closed, which im sure the organisers were happy about, the gates on the cycle track are obviously there for a reason but they did take your pace/stride from you when trying to negotiate them, and the finishing straight although a bit shorter than last year, it was certainly easier on the feet.
All in all another well organised event and for sure i will be back next year. Thanks.
Oh by the way 1:38:03 according to my garmin. think the chip timing is a bit out, and i was only 30 secs slower than last year, but after my mare at the start of the week, im delighted
