anne23 Not sure how much the 8:30am start will hurt. And I can't decide whether to get the bus (well, 2 of them) there or cycle. Or what time to actually aim for. No idea what I'm doing at all, in fact. Help. UPDATE: Bah. Sorry to people who bet. Putting in official time because that's what I always do. Unaffiliated 1:37:42 1:49:00 1:49:34 1:50:12 59.17

BigEvilC Very hot even for 8.30 start , lovely scenic course in parts and pretty flat to, but just didn't have the legs or HR after 5 miles. Still enjoyable morning Unaffiliated 1:29:12 1:29:12 1:29:59 1:34:45 65.36

elio by far the hottest day of the year.Very scenic half marathon,almost completely flat course.Really happy for my PB.My only complain is that at mile 9 there was the last water station,and i think  that they should had put another one near the end Unaffiliated 1:21:38 1:38:15 1:44:00 1:38:15 59.42
gray Not my finest hour - the problem with running the London Marathon is that one then temporarily views lesser distances with slight disrespect – I went into this run with the attitude that it was barely long enough to de-sensitise the nipples, and paid the price. Further, what I’d thought was a gentle jog along the Thames towpath to Hampton Court and back (I hadn’t read the bumf) turned out to mainly consist of a trawl through the streets of Teddington, Strawberry Hill and Ham, mingling with the dog-walkers, sunday paper gatherers and boot sale diehards. It was also rather warm, especially by the time I finished. Well done to the organisers, though, who were remarkably cheerful bearing in mind the hour.

Kieren I think that was the time.  Very hot weather made it hard going with very little shade on the route. Toilet break half way round probably added 5 minutes to my time but let the HR settle a I was struggling with a sub-7 pace.  Ran easy along the river as it was shaded giving my body a chance to cool down and also walked through all the water stations. Given all of that, I must say that I am really happy with my time. Calves are very tight now but I haven't lost as much fitness as first thought so should be able to PB at Windsor later in the year.

Kittenheels Kath Ooee that was hot.  Not a PB time, but I'm very very happy that I managed to maintain such an even pace in that heat.  Brought it down to under 9 minutes miles for the last three miles too.  I'd like to thank DDiva for pinning my number on straight, and generally being fab; Kitty for her company during the first three miles; Heals for the chat at mile 5-ish; Sarah for picking me up at mile 11; and Contro for the hug at the end.  Oh and Hollywood for popping up along the way and shouting. Unaffiliated 1:58:31 1:59:08 1:59:08 57.86
Kitty Do not bet! No chance of a PB :(

Hot! Ran with KHKath for the first 3 miles and rapidly realised that I was going to have to slow down in order to get round. Became more of an exercise in self-preservation than of speed but never mind....the race itself was very scenic, plenty of drinks stations and there were lots of lovely fetchies. And I've got a suntan ;) Serpentine RC 2:00:34 2:06:44 2:11:00 49.77

MattTheRat After a Reading HM and London Marathon spoiled by illness, this is another attempt at a sub-80 half marathon. ** UPDATE ** No chance in this heat. But an excellent race, overtaking lots of people in the 2nd half. 37th out of 852. Victoria Park Harriers & Tower Hamlets AC 1:19:59 1:20:30 1:19:59 1:24:30 72.68

oprah PB for the first 5K and then it was over for me. Started to struggle with the heat at mile 4, and by mile 6 had the most stubborn of stitches, I am just happy to have finished. Run/walked from mile 5. Amazed I came under 2:20 with all the walking I did. Knee started to go at mile 11. Unaffiliated 1:37:20 2:15:55 2:18:37 47.05
Ploddington Bear Looking to improve on last year's Sussex Beacon time and this year's Hastings time Update 03/05 - not likely to PB, struggling with training at the moment. UPDATE - bloody hot, esp after mile 5 or 6 when there seemed to be no shade whatsoever. Was doing sub 10 miles up to mile 5 or so then struggled with heat and lack of energy. Garmin time 2.14 (was at teh back of the starting pack) FERC 2:03:11 2:16:15 2:14:00 2:16:17 48.70

The Outlaw Richmond Half Marathon.  Good start (1 mile @ 6:15, then 6:20 miling to halfway), then slowed a little.
