Bath Half Marathon 2010

Sunday 7th March - Along with 10,910 other runners (and boy, did it feel like it!) I did the annual 13.1 mile jaunt around the streets of Bath.

Ellen and the kids, plus my mum and dad, came along for support which was fantastic. Clear blue sky but bitterly cold winds made for quite ideal running conditions once underway and warmed up. Again, the start was busy with some jostling for positions and evidence of slow runners/walkers starting too far up the field (with some pulling over to the side of the road after the first mile!!!!)

All in all quite a good run, but felt tired from a bit of a manic weekend (Jack's birthday and sick kids), yet still finishing in a new PB of 01:44:34 - 2,474th position (top 23% of the field).

I believe that with better weekend preparation (i.e. proper rest and relaxation) we could be on for a sub-01:40 in Bristol in September!
