My personal half-marathon run - 25th August 2018

As you can see, I finally managed to get round to doing the “replacement” half-marathon to make up for the Salomon Richmond Half on 18th March 2018, which was cancelled due the extremely bad weather (if you can remember back that far!) Of course, that was followed by a lengthy period of the complete opposite, with temperatures up to 34°C, which is not conducive to pleasant distance running even very early in the morning.

I took advantage of the ideal running conditions this morning to grind out the 13.1 miles in a time of 2h 2m 24secs – not a PB but faster that two of my previous runs, not bad considering I am two years older!

Thank you to all who sponsored me prior to the scheduled run – if you would like to show your support now then just hit the ‘donate’ button and follow the instructions, not forgetting to Gift Aid your donation if you are an eligible taxpayer.
