Tewkesbury Half-Marathon

B Rubble Once I started I realised trying to get close to 1:30 two weeks after a marathon was a bit ambitious.  Great run though, friendly locals good marshalling and a relatively flat course.  Hot at times but lots of drinks and sponges.  Got a PB by 2 minutes so by this time next year...... Dursley Running Club 1:25:12 1:31:56 1:31:00 1:33:41 64.53

GettingThere A  good race although you could tell it wasn't organised by a running club as the marshalls were not exactly enthusiastic, but a fairly flat course and very well policed by the gloustershire force.

Unfortunately I think the warmth got to me and 11 1/2 onwards was a real struggle. Bedford Harriers AC 1:33:33 1:41:20 1:50:54 53.81

MarkC Terrible. *rse. Bag o'sh*te. Day started badly, waking up with appalling cramps in my left calf and went downhill from there. Was on course for 1:42 or so at 8 miles but it went pear-shaped from Mile 9. Think I was dehydrated, mentally I just wasn't there, wasn't interested. I was all over the place. At Mile 11, I wanted to stop, throw my running shoes in the bin, and crawl under a hedge. Big dent in my confidence today. Better get myself straight back into another half mara, and put it behind me.

Humble apologies to Boabyboy. Sorry mate, I turned out to be a bad bet! Unaffiliated 1:32:59 1:48:35 1:45:00 1:48:35 54.20
