janda does the North London Half!

janda does the North London Half!

Feeling pretty good placing 1805/ 4788 and 74th in my category (Men 50-54) in a new Personal Best time of 1 hour 52 minutes 35 seconds. A full 51 seconds faster and on a more challenging course. (Mildly undulating apparently doesn't include the big hills!) Refueled before facing the next ordeal ... shopping in Sainsburys . Photo below is before the start at the home of Saracens Rugby Footbal Club.

Thanks JJ. It's a good feeling and motivating for the next one which I'd like to get down to 1:50 if I can. It probably means shaving another seven seconds off every km to do it. Better think of a plan!

Yes it does, doesn't it? I was saying earlier today that the motivation comes from what others say, do and think to encourage you. I have had lots of it from these pages and from elsewhere on social media. Thanks.
