    Fantastic time in what was miserable conditions - not even going to post my time as I was running as moral support but I reckon there's a 1:50 in me on that course. Did it last year in 2:01. Couldn't get over how many people were out under gazebos cheering everyone on.

    Did you see the winning time? 1:03:36. FFS, that's rocket propelled!

    Ridiculous time isn't it? Imagine being that quick!! Under 5 minute a mile, fuck me. Could do that when i was 18 or so but doubt i'd have done 13 miles at that pace, no chance now i'm almost 50!!

    Support is fantastic, got goosebumps at one point, so much support despite the weather is amazing.

    That book changed my running completely, no more expensive trainers!

  4. Even more pleased with my half marathon effort now, as I have been ill since last week and the doc just diagnosed me with shingles!
    Hopefully a quicker time next time round

  7. Thanks mate yeah I felt really flat last week was glad to get round! I’ve booked the Wilmslow 10k for end of November-have you done it before? Definitely a PB course if you haven’t.

    No mate, done the Wilmslow half a couple of times. Away end of November in Goa so can't do that or the Stockport 10 miles this year either.

    Anyone else doing the Oldham half marathon this Sunday? Going to be a cold one so stay as warm as you possibly can.
