cerid Was never going to be pretty since I hadn't run the distance since July but the additional of yesterday's exertions at Fan Fawr had me really strugglign from about 10k in. After the 9 mile mark it all became about not walking but I'm reasonably happy with this time considering all of the above. Les Croupiers RC 1:24:16 1:25:12 1:29:04 66.33

Kestell At the 9 mile mark it did appear to get tough and the inclines (rather than hills!) Made it tougher. Felt aggrieved that I didn't do the sub 1:40 race I planned but should be pleased on a good race. San Domenico RC 1:38:06 1:39:47 1:39:00 1:40:16 69.83

Sheridanslack A great race - the best yet, but not for my time. Not enough consistent training in the build up meant a big crash at mile 9, and a plod to the finish line. I will return to do better in 2014. Wimbledon Windmilers 1:30:31 1:30:55 1:30:00 1:34:36 63.08

spanky the wonder monkey My first half and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wished I'd pushed a bit harder on the section I knew well (first 8 miles) but was well happy to finish on the same hour number as the winner.
Really well organised event. I was expecting more congestion on the route with there being 14,000  people actually running but I found it comparatively uncluttered. Was expecting quite a slow first mile, but from the off was on, and maintaining, my target pace.
Really nice route, taking in numerous iconic Cardiff landmarks and masses of supporters within the city itself.
Finish area was nicely laid out with sufficient distance to properly warm down and stretch out before waiting to get goody bag White Rock Runners 1:56:29 1:59:07 2:10:00 1:59:07 52.42
