Hello everybody! White Peak half marathon this morning - a course best if not a pb at 2.21 (ridiculously inadequate compared to others' achievements but l'm proud )
Wind behind, three amazing downhills, chilly (ish) sunshine, more wildflowers than you could shake a stick at, great organization and only five minutes from home!
Was hoping for 2.15 but absolutely nothing left in the tank at mile 11 and blue lips when l got home but a fab run all the same.
(Only downside was the elderly finisher being leapt on by a spectator's dog literally ten yards from the finish, tripped up, fell and banged his head on a big rock. Paramedics there in seconds but dog allowed to runup the finishing straight to harras other finishers.)
