This is my favourite run of the year. The support from the crowds and the marshalls was superb. Although I really enjoyed the run, all the photos of me have various grimaces !! I am not very photogenic when I am going through pain and nausea...
All the way round the course all we got was encouragement from the crowds, the marshalls and the other runners, great running atmosophere. Great idea not to allow headsets...Thanks to this encouragement I managed to beat last years half marathon time by one hour and 2 minutes.( okay so a few miles difference), great result. I reckon I must have been one of the most improved runners since last year. Dr Roberts was there a prize for this ???
I think it was Ghostrider that I was talking to at the end, you looked like you was doing really well. We got our times under 2.30 so that was a result for both of us. The bloke with the cut knee is he okay ??
Something that I noticed on this run was that 193 out of 200 finished the race. Normally for this sort of run there is about a 25% drop out / non finnish non start rate which is anchievement by the organisers and runners.
Next year as long as I am fit and well I think I will try the marathon..
I want that t-shirt !!!
See you all at Greensands
