Jane Hayde & I drove the long journey up to Lake Vyrnwy on the 9th Sept to do the half marathon. We were persuaded to do this one on account of it being flat, unlike most of our local races!
After completing the Worcester half back in May in the boiling hot sunshine, I was hoping for better weather conditions as the heat slowed me down & I didn't achieve the time the time I wanted. We left Hereford in the sunshine & as we drove nearer, the clouds built & much to our delight it began raining!
I personally thoroughly enjoyed the flat course & for once, not having to dread what kind of incline was potentially waiting around the corner! I'm sure the view of the Lake was gorgeous if you could see it through the cloud & drizzle!
It was well organised & well supported & you were given a t shirt & a medal at the end. I would recommend it to anyone in pursuit of a PB, if you don't mind the travelling.
I was thrilled to have achieved a PB of 1 hour 37 mins, knocking a minute off my previous time 2 years ago!
