Barcelona Marathon

BigG New PB. Pretty pleased with the performance after the previous couple of months training went badly due to chest infection. Probably ran the first half too fast and lost quite a bit of time in the second half. Definite room for improvement.
The race itself was quite nice, taking in a lot of Barcalona's sites. The organisation was pretty poor though. It got quite hot towards the end. North Yorks Moors AC 2:44:31 2:48:51 2:44:59 2:48:51 72.82

Foxy i started off slowly but after 3 KM upped the pace, it was a hot day but the course in general was well shaded. 

the cottom t-shirt was embroidered but a strange dirty white / grey colour & the medal was an unimaginative design. 

this was the first time i came across the line in my now trademark Airplane finish. 

i forgot my Ipod but at least I didn't throw my race number in the bin as Dave Ross did. 

pleased with my 3rd consecutive solo sub 3 hr 30 min marathon (i ran Florence with Babette & DW with Paul Watts).

I ran in (almost) Wolves colours an Orange vest for MS (i was told they had a team & support in Barcelona - i didn't see anyone & my vest only arrived 10 mins before i was leaving to fly out !!) I raised just over £650 for them. 100 Marathon Club, MK Lakeside Runners, Milton Keynes Lakeside Runners 3:09:27 3:26:47 3:29:59 3:29:17 58.91

Nick99 Great day, lovely city to run around and not much in the way of hills. Was grateful for sunblock and tshirt, temp gauge at noon was 22C and sunny. My first experience of forced slow running, v good training for (perhaps) first ultra in 2008.  Only drawback was my co-runners 60's vintage jokes...just kidding Malc :O)
Recommended, not too large a field, just get to expo early to avoid queues and take some free time to see the city. Quite a few brits, lots of French, allez allez! New Forest Runners 3:32:31 4:01:14 4:30:00 4:57:00 41.89
Nightjar 9425 points bet on me! Got a sub 4 hour under my belt at last, which was my primary target, but I couldn't hit the predicted time. Less heat - I reckon it was 25c - and more training would have stopped the legs falling off at 34k. Loved Barcelona, will go back and take the tourist bus next time. Thanks for all the messages of support. Bedford Harriers AC, LDWA 3:40:42 3:57:24 3:45:00 3:57:24 54.48

trigger74 Good race, lovely day. Great time 1.42 for first half and 1.41 for second. Last 2 miles very hard in the heat. Loved the table of fruit at the end. Reading Roadrunners, Watford Joggers 3:11:37 3:13:05 3:26:00 3:23:21 60.47
