First Half Marathon done - and boy was it hard. It was a unusually hot day (for the UK) at around 26C. The heat really affected my performance - adding around 15mins to my expected finish time. Also this time includes an emergency toilet break (look at the map just before the 8M marker) with out this I would have come in under 2 hours :-(. It was all up hill to the half way mark, which was the real killer (combined with the heat). All things considered I still really enjoyed it - but it was real hard graft! Time to start looking for the next race...

    Congrats on your 1st half mary. Yeah - heat does kill your time. Nothing you can do about that.

    Thanks guys! It doesn't get much hotter in than 26C in the UK and that's usually in the height of summer. I ran a half practice last Sat and it was raining! You just never know what it's going to be like.
