Well done Jools on PB and nice running Toro.
It was nice to chat with DrD at start of Gosport - I am blaming my bushy beard costing me a PB
My warm up involved getting wet and cold so almost wish I had sat in car. Coupled with the fact my ankle has been giving me problems all week I questioned why I was there.
I set off hoping for about 83 minutes but somehow the pace felt pretty comfortable and so I ended up going a bit quicker. I managed to finish in 81:30 so happy with result. If I had known I was anywhere near that shape I would have gone a bit harder and tried for a PB. This year I have managed to run my 3 fastest half marathons which after 20 years of running I am pretty pleased with - just got to convert it to a decent marathon next year.
oh and I think I saw you TR but it was near the cone turn round point and I wasn't up for shouting across a random hello.
