Duke of Drayton I feel like the half is unfinished business, I didn't enjoy the last one mostly because of my poor preparation so hoping for better from this one.  I loved this run, my second half marathon. It was friendly and well organised taking place along the surprisingly scenic canal towpath running from Wolves to B'ham. Predominately flat with the occasional rise to climb over canal bridges definate. A hot sunny day but plenty of water stations some with Isotonic drinks also marshalls at every mile marker. Definate PB potential. Sign me up for next year!

Go-KL Entered June 23 - intend to enjoy the race and use it as a good training session.

Suffered a bit in the race because of hayfever (took a tablet before the race, made me feel like I just couldn't push any harder than 174bpm). Found the time trail race an interesting challenge, quite lonely in places and it felt more like a training run. The course is actually quite tough because the surface is mostly dirt which saps a bit out of you cumulatively. 

Nevertheless finished 12th and 4th in the main time trial race excluding the elites so am reasonably happy with that. Grantham Running club 1:14:46 1:18:33 1:22:00 1:25:04 68.71
