Cardiff Half Marathon this morning. When I entered the race I was in top form & planning to go sub-80 for the first time, however things have conspired against me since my last marathon and I've not been feeling too good as I've been suffering from more than a few aches, pains, cuts & bruises lately. So, under my revised estimation, as long as I finished under 90 minutes this morning then I would be happy.

For the first time in my life I started a race in the Elite section and when the race began I started to bang out the miles as well as I could until they started to hurt... The first 5 miles were out of the way in under 30 minutes, then I started to slow... 15 minutes to get through the next two miles, before I got a second wind & kicked on again. By the time I'd hit 11 miles I knew I had a problem - big achilles pain on the right ankle & I'd lost the feeling in my left foot... I got to the 13 mile banner - and stopped dead. People were shouting at me to get moving, that the finish was just around the corner, that I was nearly there... But the pain in my feet was killing me... So I bent down, removed my shoes & socks, felt the life suddenly flood back into both feet - and I ran the final 200m in bare feet - Abebe Bikila stylee... Finishing time? 1:26:22 Get-In!!!

I think that we should have a Forum pasta party / get-together before the race...

As a Bristolian, can I just point out that, from my perspective, every day is talk like a pirate day...


Edinburgh Marathon on TV?

Great Edinburgh Run - shut down the city centre & have a well organised race. Edinburgh Marathon - Get everyone out of the city centre as quickly as possible & a disorganised shambles.

See if you can guess which race portrayed the city in a good light...
