BigG Was ill with a cold and really shouldn't have run, but I couldn't resist. Shame I wasn't fit as course and conditions were perfect for a PB attempt. North Yorks Moors AC 1:17:26 1:18:27 1:17:00 1:20:22 72.65

ChrisDig Exactly a minute away from  PB , had 2 bad miles at 8 & 11 ish (7,30m/mile) apart from that felt good and consistent between 6,30 and 6.40 m/mile , sorry about the bet zoom - didn't quite have it on the day. Unaffiliated 1:27:17 1:28:00 1:28:17 67.59
FML This is my 3rd half marathon, suffer in windy conditions in the last 2. So if weather is good and my pacemaker survives FLM hopefully on for this!  Wow!!!!! Great pacing by my team mate who made the slowest 2 miles the first 2, kept me steady for miles 6 to 9 and then I slowly wound up the pace finishing with an 8:32 in the last mile Sleaford Town Runners 1:58:07 2:05:58 2:08:00 2:05:58 47.12

Pllumby The weather was perfect, overcast, no wind and light rain. Hadn't done enough prep for the race with only a couple of 10milers but decided to go for it anyway! Ended up beating my PB! Knee buggered tho :-(

snogard As predicted it rained, so cold and wet to begin with.  The course is flat and is along the promenade and the sea defences.  I set off too fast, 1st mile in 9:24, slowed the nest to to 10mins and then settled into 11:00 - 11:30 minute miles.  Had problems between miles 6 and 10, shoe  lace kept comming undone and was struggling to keep pace, but this settled again.  Mostly a good run Stockport Harriers & AC, FERC 2:02:20 2:27:53 2:27:53 49.55
Steady Edina Nearly pulled out at the last minute - I was scared because I knew I hadn't prepared properly. So glad I went met lots of lovely people along the way and I felt so good afterwards. Mile 10 was a killer but after a walk break I managed a little recovery and caught up with some of the girls that had got away from me. The Prestwich Plodders 2:21:08 2:37:00 2:30:00 2:37:00 42.48
sugs Looking forward to this one.  Would like to try and get under my last time (also at Blackpool a few weeks ago). Not being too over confident though.  Will see how it goes on the day.

Great race - smashed my PB coming in around 1.41.24 - just waiting for official results to come through.  Thanks to Dave Lord who ran with me and kept me going.  Thanks to all those that bet on me.  Well done to all that did it.
