captain catastrophe Good race - went much better than I had planned or expected. My mate Dave pulled me along to beat my PB by a massive 14 minutes! Good practice for Edinburgh but still under no illusions about how tough my first marathon will be.  York Knavesmire Harriers 1:44:37 1:44:37 1:44:37 60.01

Grid This was a bit of a car crash.  Recovering from a heavy cold, and having done no running for two weeks prior, meant that I was not in good shape.  Did Liverpool a few weeks back in 1:57, so set a conservative target of 2:25 for 11 minute miles.  Overheated badly on the way up to the ring road and never recovered, and I had to walk a good proportion of the last few miles - despite these being flat.  It was murder.  Glad just to get round in one piece. Bournville Harriers 1:46:42 1:57:17 2:25:00 2:25:19 39.90

Karen S Last time did this was back in 2007. I didn't train properly and half walked/jogged for the last 2-3 miles. I think I've prepared properly this time, did 13 mile run at steady pace in 2:19 and am secretly targetiing for under 2:10 if I feel good on the day. Am very familiar with running the hills on this route, I used to run them many a time when I lived in Meanwood for 6 years! BTW I was actually on the winning team for the Leeds Half Marathon Corporate Challenge Relay way back in 1995 with the mixed men & women's team from PricewaterhouseCoopers. Seem to remember getting a nice sports bag as a prize (about the only thing I have won!). I must have been quite fast then! I wonder if I'll ever be that fast again.......

Brilliant, managed a PB and kept to my target pace exactly all way round. Felt very comfortable all way round probably need to start pushing myself a bit harder now.....I even passed the smurf at 10 1/2 miles! Wakefield Triathlon Club 2:11:14 2:11:14 2:15:00 2:11:14 50.47

softshoe really disappointed as thought i'd trained hard for this, my first half in a couple of years. the second long hill took me by surprise and by 7miles my legs had gone. the only good thing to come out of it was that i never actualy stopped or walked. can anyone suggest any long hills on which to train around the dn3 area Unaffiliated 1:42:24 1:48:38 1:40:00 1:48:38 58.79

Whoisdavidmagii? Last half marathon was Burn Valley last year. This is much less hilly thank god so should go quicker (in theory).
Well - Kebab & half a bottle of vino last night did the trick. Felt great all the way around; last mile a slog but by then I didn't care because the PB was in the bag. Pudsey Pacers RC 1:29:07 1:38:14 1:40:00 1:38:14 62.34
