Loch Leven Half Marathon

Sat May 17 2008 Listed by _andy
23 Entrants Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
_andy 1:28:25 is a pretty hefty PB for me, neatly dodging the 1:29 times completely.  Felt comfortable most of the way, joined a group of about ten between 2 and 4 miles and tucked in nicely at the back, but the hill at Vane farm proved a bit too much and I fell off the back.  After that, it was a pretty lonely nine miles, with three runners passing me at various points and me pulling back one place with an impressive sprint finish (that's what I'm built for - this endurance malarky running is just me being daft).  39th place and mission accomplished.  Yay! Kinross Road Runners 1:20:41 1:28:05 1:29:31 1:28:25 66.82

cake muncher Placed 3rd / 1st vet. A very well organised and scenic race around Loch Leven. I really liked the souvenir towel and bag. Thought they were much better than a medal. We even got good running weather for a change! Falkland Trail Runners 1:17:15 1:17:25 1:17:25 79.33

Dvorak Mixed feelings about this.  Considering that I came down with a stomach bug on Sunday and have been on under half rations all week, I suppose turning up was a bit of an achievement, and finishing, even more so.  Ran reasonably to around 10 miles, though I could feel the power draining from around 7: seriously ran out of juice then, last 3.1 in over 35 mins with several walk breaks.  If I had been a wee bit faster, I would have been happy, but it just wasn't there.  Still, this is a marker: I will NEVER run a slower HM. 

Coursewise- I suppose the overcast day didn't do it any favours, but I found it a bit so-so.  Also a lot more vehicular traffic than I expected.  Pretty well organised, and the goodie bag (featuring a towel and the actual bag itself) was different. Unaffiliated 1:53:58 1:58:50 2:09:00 2:16:04 45.14

Hibeedeb entered 45 minutes before the start, having had a sore right calf for a few days - it was fine on race morning, but my left one hurt, so I havered a bit, and then entered, planning on taking it easyish... Pirate Ship Of Fools 1:52:38 1:52:38 2:00:00 1:56:00 63.17

Runnersleep Another good run. Very steady pace from start and kept it going well. Rather cold and I probably put too much on. Great course and scenic although the hill at Scotlandwell concentrates the mind
Looking forward to progressing towards that 1 hr 30 mark sometime this year. Unaffiliated 1:22:09 1:37:24 1:37:24 65.19

Ultracat steady paced training run.  Enjoyed my little run round the Loch.  Cool and dry but a tad windy.  Hillier than I remembered though Metro Aberdeen 1:58:00 2:00:30 2:09:10 59.54
