A lot of people disliked the old course... it was barren and windy. And that Febuary wind could be pretty crisp.
The new course goes through more of the actual town of Peterborough. I haven't actually run it yet, but I'm looking forward to it... it certainly couldn't be less interesting.

My Peterborough 1/2 Marathon History
This was the first running race I ever did... so it's nice to look back at my times and see a progression. I think I still have more in me for this one!
2010 - 1:45:26
It's at an odd time of year, so I'm far from my peak... but I think I can get close to my PB of 1:41:10. My ultimate goal this year is a sub-1:35, which is impossible for this race, but hopefully I show enough improvement to keep the dream alive!
