Badger Won't be a PB; pacing Tulla  for debut half- marathon. Result: got Tulla round, though she had a bit of a leg wobble at 11 miles; she walked for a little then got running again and put in a sprint finish at the end (don't know where *that* came from). Was very impressed by the race all round and will be back next year to run it harder! FERC 1:45:02 1:55:11 2:25:50 42.11

BlueWombat my half PB is surely due a dust-off? It's been sitting there too long, and has gone soft.

Sorry folks, it has stayed soft. Don't know why I can't hack this distance. I should do better, I know, but it's a disappointing time. At least I managed to dip under 1:40 Cambridge & Coleridge AC, Cambridge University Hare & Hounds 1:39:42 1:39:54 1:37:00 1:39:54 62.50
Chaz66 fantastic race, well organised - best bit was the beer at the half way point - the secret to getting PBs has been discovered! Norfolk Gazelles Running Club 1:54:28 1:54:28 1:55:00 1:54:28 53.22

Hash I really can't belive that was a PB - looks like a week of lying around drinking beer on a Greek sunbed is what they mean by Unaffiliated 1:53:22 1:53:49 1:59:00 1:54:25 61.32

MrMarcus Training in recent weeks has gone really well so i will be looking at a PB for this one. Hopefully by a couple of minutes.....very happy with that run no pb but good solid effort, even with a stiff headwind 2nd half of lap. Ipswich JAFFA RC 1:23:10 1:33:45 1:35:00 1:37:39 59.85

Tiny Haystacks First half-marathon for me.

All going well until miles 10/11 when legs very nearly gave way, so missed the 2 hours 20 I was hoping for; got round somehow, but the last bit was slow. Thanks to Badger for pacing me round. Unaffiliated 2:25:15 2:25:15 2:20:00 2:25:15 45.50

TZ What a great day! Pleased to whoop 90secs off my PB :-)  Would have been a better result had I not passed through: 5mi @ 30:05 (6sec slower than 5mi PB), 7mi @ 42:31 (4:02 quicker than 7mi PB), 10mi @ 61:07 (2:36  quicker than 10mi PB). The last three miles were then quite painful!!! Best of all, there's a bunch of new PBs out there, waiting for a future race day! Happy TZ... 100 Marathon Club, Winchester & District AC 1:17:03 1:19:13 1:22:55 1:20:43 72.91
