B 4th half marathon in 22 days.** Ran easy up the hills to half way and gradually wound it up - felt great along the sea front. Legs felt tired all the way though and a bit too hot for my liking** Heathfield RRC 1:29:28 1:30:29 1:31:30 74.21

dovetail Didn't get going as well as I hoped for this race. The weather was very warm and seemed to sap my energy. Really hoped for a PB but just didn't work out. Bexhill Runners 1:47:40 1:53:26 1:50:00 1:54:35 52.76

jonoshea Not sure what to expect but looks like a popular race.

Kevski Never EVER say definate PB! Tough course, hot weather, just back from a lay off and stomach cramp from mile 3. Over confident. Humble pie eaten! Prat! Cambridge Harriers, Dulwich Park Runners 1:23:52 1:23:52 1:24:00 1:28:10 66.23

LisaS how do you run 9 miles uphill and only 2 miles downhill to end up in same place?!!!! God, I thought I was going to die! Collingwood AC 2:11:32 2:33:00 2:40:00 2:33:00 43.20
Little Nemo Hilly route but Greenwich sessions paid off. Took it steady uphill and made up a lot of ground by flying down the downhills. Managed a sub-9:00 min. mile on one of them which is fast for me. Paying for it now though as I have one slightly dodgy toenail and v. heavy legs. Last 3 miles were pretty tough even though they were flat.

Nice atmosphere and good crowd support. Serpentine RC 2:11:52 2:16:04 2:20:00 2:16:04 49.90

Poots Team came 4th, which is ace.  My body will never forgive me though.  Stupid idea to have raced this with no training.  Still feeling like a busted bum! Striders of Croydon AC, Ravens City of London Running Club 1:31:22 1:36:05 1:45:00 1:36:05 68.16

Rock Steady This was a hilly race, I was running ok, and on target but run out of steam on the home straight (3 miles) and had to walk some. However, not a bad run considering Seaford Striders RC 1:53:11 1:53:50 1:54:00 1:58:01 56.18

Shufflepuck Café I was one of the unlucky few whose chip times were not recorded, for some reason. But I think my actual race time was pretty much 1:33 spot on.

For future reference: The two days before this race, I drank less alcohol and more water. The night before, I went out to eat and had a huge dinner of BBQ spare ribs and chips. In the morning I had a bacon bap 2 hours before race start. Unaffiliated 1:32:21 1:33:00 1:37:00 1:33:00 62.78
Silver Strider A training run. Took Ian round. He was hoping for 1:45. Running for Demelza. Ian struggled with Queensway.

Will race it next year Bexhill Runners and Triathletes 1:29:44 1:34:57 1:45:00 1:48:01 55.58
