PB clock time - 1.49.04 so very pleased. 18th Veteran Lady! Slight pain in left knee at 6 miles but it had gone by 10 miles - very happy with my run today.
New PB by nearly 4 mins!
A cracker of a day - good route with lots of suppport. Wonderful goodie bag. I`ll be back next year. Ohh got a PB by a margin of 1 min 20 sec.
Fantastic race! Who knew Bracknell had hills! Felt great up till about mile 11, when I relented and walked for 1min - felt much better for that, but hip flexor really sore by then (it kicked in at about mile 6). Shoes felt great, but feet started to hurt at about mile 7, a couple of blisters this time too.
Great race - well organised, made the most of Bracknell
This is early in the year for me. I usually train seriously in the sweltering summer and run my best in September. It would be a bit silly to bet on me. I'm treating this as a training run. *****RACE REPORT***** Er, I don't quite know how to say this but it was a mahooosive PB. 1:28:56 Garmin time. I expect the official chip time won't be more than a second different. Total surprise to me. Especially as there was a bu99er of a hill at miles 6 and 7. After that it didn't exactly flaten out or go down again. How can you have a course that is only UP and ends at the same altitude as the start? The only excuses I can make are that I had my biggest training mileage month ever last month, a totally run-free week last week and it was a nice hot day. I wonder how fast I could go on a flat course?
1st ever Bracknell Half, lets see if all the training has paid off.
Held back to focus on Wokingham
Ran despite achilles problem. Daft. And did hit 2.10 exactly as I had predicted! More luck than anything though as I was dead for the last three miles.
Great event. Step down in distance and up in pace to beat Mr Arno Koen RM. Chip timed. Ran without number due to over subscription. Gave the SAFA a lesson in warm weather running.

Good support most of the way round and the marshals were everywhere, how did they get so many people to give up their free time on such a beautiful day, many thanks to all of them, and to the organisers . Also was quite surprised at the scenery.
