They must have changed the route, looks a bit different now. I'm hoping for a calm day ๐Ÿ™

1:19:07 at Fleetwood Half, fairly breezy and 10 secs faster than my downhill Edinburgh half from end of May so heading in right direction.

A very surprising 3rd place podium finish too, but there were only 175 in the race. Apart from the first 1.5 miles ran the whole thing alone, 2nd placed guy finished 2mins ahead of me so mentally it was tough with no target in sight.

Drama on the morning of the race when I realised I had packed my wifes shorts, she's 5'3 and im 6'1, so my attire was very aerodynamic ๐Ÿ˜

Nice one Damo. :)

No need to boast about 'packing your wife's shorts' either ;)
