Wrap up warm, it’s time for the Great Bentley Half Marathon on Sunday. I’m looking forward to it. I have no real hope of beating my PB, but if I am not significantly worse I will be happy. 2:05 would be good, under 2:10 respectable and anything over that would be a complete disaster. Last year’s race report is here and I see I was not looking forward to it. If I can just nail the run-at-same-pace thing and keep a steady 9:15 per mile, I’d be fine.
I’m also running the second Colchester half in March – talk about local, I can walk to the start and the race goes practically past my front door.
