good Sunderland Half Marathon 12.89 mi 01:39 07:39 pace

I must have been cutting out a few corners to have managed a 12.89 miles on a half marathon course. Well I got my PB and sub 1:40, which is what I wanted. I had a terrible start, I was at the back of the crowd before the start, we then went over the start line and then just stopped! We were stood still for at least 10 seconds I counted, then we very slowly started again and there were a lot of people doing the marathon who were mixed in with us who were understandably doing a slower pace, I would be if I were doing 26 miles. It was very windy and there were inclines and a few hills but it wasn't a bad course. Very happy with my PB, even if I did seem to run a shorter distance. I wonder if others also ran around the same distance. I know I spent lots of time weaving in and out of people and thought that I would have ran more than the distance. Never mind, it's still a pb!

    Wow, great work. It's frustrating having to weave in and out of people. Despite that you did superb. Looking through your training I predict a sub 135 next or even a 130. Top class runner you. x
