the great north run is a great half marathon to do as a starter. loads of support all the way around. i seem to have got into the habit of doing it every 5 years (2000, 2005, 2010) so a couple of more years to go! have some lovely holiday cottages that we go to so its a good excuse for a holiday.
it was a great day FFB. the half marathon course was great including the pain between miles 5 and 8. heard the marshall at the turning point talking about someone that ran on but did they not see everyone else turning round?
did think about coming to say hello to you ffb but you looked so busy so i just said a brief hello to Tri instead.
really please with my time which i think was around the 1:52 mark according to my garmin so well pleased with that given the hills at the turn.
