janda does Run Hackney

Completed Run Hackney half marathon in a world record time of 1:47:42. Met some of my 'Beyond c25k' Facebook friends before the start but didn't manage to find them again after a trip to the loo and subsequent race! Placed 2721 out of a cast of thousands and 58th in M50 category. Very pleased with the run.

My Garmin watch was better than it was in North London but required a minor edit: showing a remarkably steady pace till the 19th km. Enormous fun and I met up with a colleague, her husband, sister, mum and a crowd of her friends afterwards. Thank goodness my wife kindly agreed to be the designated driver and made sure we got home safely.

Now what shall I do next? Ah, perhaps that St Albans Half Marathon on 14th June might suit me!
