This event is listed on these dates:
I am so going to PB here. Flat course and legs in form. I recently ran 12.8 miles in the same time as my current half PB, and that was at my "steady" pace. Here we go!
My first race after taking up long distance running. Loved every minute of it and am determined to enter every year, baring injury and illness. Weather and atmosphere were perfect. Nothing better than running around your home city with people cheering you on.
first half marathon. not got a clue what time to predict.
A new PB by almost 5 minutes so pretty chuffed with the result. I set off at a good speed and tried to cling on - the 10th miile was pretty hard work. But worth it!
very happy with time. Didn't like the uphill bit at the end, without could have got under 1-46.
Update - chip time was 1-45 very happy!
new race so looking forward to it didnt enjoy it as much as the old course very bitty and bobby and twisty and turny but an interesting course as long as you dont want a pb
paid up 28/9. Prediction nearer date. My 2nd half so more familiar with pacing and I'm in good shape so hope to beat my PB. Obliterated My PB and very very happy to get sub 80-aim of 2008 already achieved. Didn't think I could run so fast. Felt so good all the way round running with the first lady for miles 4-9 miles, then got dropped then reeled her back in the final mile. Splits 1mile 5:52, 5mile: 29:52, 7mile: 42:13, 10mile 60:34. Race organisation Ok, needed more loos but marshalling great and good support around course. Came 12th out of 978. Gun time of 1:19:15.
Leicester half marathon - practice race for Snowdonia. Did first 9 miles at about 9min/mile then 'ran' the final four miles averaging about 7:40.
watchtime - waiting on chip. Tougher course than expected. a bit twisty, the path along the canal was tarmac but very uneven with lots of rises/fall for roads. the final 2 miles were slow due to cobbles on the 12th and New Walk hill on the 13th.
Still, 2nd fast half to date so cant complain.
First half marathon!
(time given is "chip time" from results)
Was aiming to get under the sub 2hr for the first time but training going well and good result at Swansea Bay 10k decided to aim for 9 min miling and hooray, even beat that!!!
felt like c**p
The final climb up new walk was difficult
actual time is my chip time
A brilliant day, racing back in Leicester where I was at uni, so this was a lovely trip down amnesia lane. And it was my fastest half so far!
