White Horse Half Marathon

Sun April 5 2009 Listed by Zoom
28 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
Agent Orange This is the official time.  I actually ran a 1 second PB on the watch (1hr38min41secs). Perfect conditions and no wind for once.  Ran an intelligent and well-paced race but after my recent cold just didn't have the stamina for the last mile and a half. First half in around 48.40 at fractionally under 7.30 a mile.  Spent the whole race from mile 2 overtaking people.  Obviously ran the second half in about 50 mins.  There should be more to come with a bit better training!  Big thanks to MOAT for most inspiring marshall :-) Unaffiliated 1:38:42 1:38:42 1:40:00 1:38:49 62.15

Capricorn Perfect conditions - pb by 4 1/2 minutes so very pleased. Great race as always - small-ish field so no crowding, plenty of parking, good flat course. Unaffiliated 1:35:16 1:36:13 1:36:13 72.26

Dubois Thought I would have a crack at sub 1.40, even though I thought it would likely be a bridge too far, and so it proved. Started off with Mike, a bit too quickly, settled into trying for 7:30 miling and went through 10 miles bang on 1:15. Don't know if you can hit the wall in a half, but the wheels came off in a big way, and the last 3.1 was nearer nine minute miling than eight. Whoops. Maybe a gel or a drink other than water might have helped. Still, the 40 minute PB should delight the many betters among you! Unaffiliated 1:42:45 1:42:45 1:40:00 1:42:45 56.97

MarkC Ran this strong and sensible today and got a much bigger PB than I expected. Very happy. Divided into 3 4-mile sections and aimed for 28-29 mins for each one. Just about had enough for a faster last mile but thanks ever so much to fellow Alchester runner Jason and an unknown Avon runner who both encouraged me to go for the line just as I was feeling like fading. Great event as always and on a lovely morning. Moat was a superbly encouraging marshall :) Great to see Alchester out in strength and winning lots of bling. Lovely to see Agent Orange and Peacey (who ran a total blinder) and nice to meet Dizzy Tart :) All in all a great day's racing. Unaffiliated 1:32:59 1:32:59 1:35:00 1:32:59 64.18

Running Fish quite pleased with the time, but was probably a bit over cautious with the pacing, for fear of blowing up. felt pretty good at the end, although didnt really have the sensation that i could have upped the pace much, but maybe that was just cos i was on my own for the last few miles.
