Walk into town 25 mins.

A relaxing day preparing for the half marathon tomorrow

Sun 13th Feb

20 mins walk to park

running the half marathon 13.10 miles, finished in 3 hours

walk home from park 20 mins

Weather very wet and windy, but managed surprisingly well and it was an enjoyable and inspiring experience.  I was glad I had put my running number and chip into an A4 plastic sleeve before attaching securely to my tee shirt with 4 safety pins.  All intact when I arrived back at the park.  There were a few chips that had become detached during the run and were on the road, very likely because of the really wet weather.   I wished I had taken a change of clothes, not realising there was a tent where you could get changed, a change of trainers would have been even more useful, as I had several painful blisters, due to my running through quite deep puddles.  This is something to bear in mind for next year.
