Edinburgh Forthside Half-Marathon

Sun April 1 2007
30 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Ally C My second HM and my PB to date for this distance.  Renound for its fast course, it did not disappoint.  Only trouble is I have ran 2 HMs since and been unable to go under 90 mins.  Never mind I will persist. RAF AC, Moray Roadrunners 1:19:02 1:27:40 1:30:00 1:27:40 66.93

biru well what can i say...woopeee....knocked about 4 mins off my PB today:):) found the conditions to be just about perfect...a breeze and cool temperature. felt pretty strong for most of the race, although faded a little with a couple of miles to go. managed a wee burst in the last half a mile or so though;) the race was pretty well organised too....they seemed to have got rid of last years problems.

Ellem Would quite like to be under 1Hr 51. You betting people are making me nervous!!
UPDATE - Yippee a PB by nearly a minute. Great race and so pleased that it went well this year it was well organised and well marshalled. Thoroughly enjoyed that - next time will break the 1:50 mark!!

Hee Jung Woo hoo! A new PB and sub 2hr! Couldn't be happier! Though had to do a 2 from about mile 5, so was really struggling, the result is worth it!

jp105 1:14:59 chip time and 1:15:02 gun time but I would rather go with the chip time for obvious reasons!! Very good race today.  Well organised and had lots of support on the way round.  Weather was very good and I managed to maintain a decent speed throughout.  A lot better than Alloa 2 weeks ago! Carnegie Harriers 1:14:59 1:14:59 1:14:59 77.86

racheybabes Well, not a pb by about 5 mins but took it steady as legs were tired from fridays long run. Managed to do just under 8 min/miles which has given me a bit more confidence for paris' pace. All in all a good day which was well marshalled! Nice to talk to a few CH afterwards aswell :) Unaffiliated 1:39:27 1:43:46 1:44:10 62.59
RedBen There it is, official time - a full 17 minutes and 12 seconds off my pb!  Absolutely made up and very surprised - shows what you can do with a cold and a 68 hour week at work the week before a race!  Thanks for all the bets and enjoy the credits (thank God I bet on myself!)! Unaffiliated 1:49:45 1:49:45 1:59:00 1:49:45 53.34

run2thehills Had a brilliant race and way faster than anticipated. I actually slowed down at the 7 mile mark because I felt I was running too hard and thought I'd blow-up. Picked it up again at 10 and felt brilliant.
Finished strong and didn't really need to slow. Great Prep for London. Stonehaven Running Club 1:42:15 1:42:15 1:50:00 1:42:15 60.07
santababy this is to lay the ghosts of lasts years atrocious race to rest, i was ashamed of edinburgh last year , worst race i've ever had the displeasure of running

Ticketyboo Is it possible to be delighted and gutted at the same time?

Knocked 2 1/2 minutes off my PB but didn't realise until I turned the last bend how close to sub 1.20 I was. If I had known I'm sure it would have given me that extra bit off motivation to go a little faster.

Well organised race with no issues to report.

UPDATE - I also set unofficial PB's for 5k, 10k and 10 Miles today and I didn't even have a bet on myself. Damn. Cumbernauld AAC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 1:14:11 1:20:16 1:23:00 1:20:16 72.82

z1000jeff Wasn't even going to do this one due to severe sciatica but went along to suppoort a friend and took my gear with me just in case. Got changed just in case I felt better with a couple of ibuprofens down me. Line up at the start on the basis that I might be able to hobble along slowly. Set of on the basis that I could always drop out. As this is an out annd back race by the time I reached 5 - 6 miles there was hardly any pooint in dropping out as I'd have to walk back anyway so carried on. Although in the event 1.44 was OK no-one ever likes doing a slow time whatever the circumstaces.  Oh well. There's always next year !    Unaffiliated 1:35:33 1:39:47 2:00:00 1:44:43 59.14
