I am a Half Marathoner!

I am a Half Marathoner!

Full race report later, but despite a tumble at 12 miles (hence the cut over my eye), I got myself up and smashed the 13.1 in 2:09:31... Hitting my goal and destroying it despite a bruised ego!!

Now it's beer and pizza time ..

Thank you to all of you! None of this would be possible without Laura and all of you wonderful people...

Well done to Miles today too as his HM debut resulted in a new PB (mine is a PB too) and I look forward to reading about Tomas's HM too!

Stay awesome team C25K!

  • Amazing stuff! Hope that eye's better soon but a PB in spite of that is brilliant!

  • well done, chap. That's a pretty respectable time too, especially with a slip and recovery. Several minutes better than my first HM.

    If you can, get out tomorrow, if only for a mile or so. You will benefit from it Tuesday.

    Damn. Really grinding my teeth about missing Bath Half next week now.

  • Fantastic ! Well done on that PB and completing the distance. Glad no real damage done by the fall, will the grass stains come out of your shirt though ?!?
