Race Preview: Peterborough Half Marathon 2013
This was the first running race I had ever done... waaaay back in 2007. Seems like a lifetime ago! I had just started running and for some reason thought a 1/2 marathon was 10km - probably should have googled it first.
2010 - 1:45:26
2011 - 1:38:54 (new hilly course!)
Last year I missed the race due to recovery from an injury, but I'm back this year...
Unfortuantely I'm not yet in race shape. I've been getting the workouts in, but my weight is higher than I would like and I'm coming off a few weeks of being sick (and a week of vacation in Orlando too!).
But hey, it's February. I would like to hold a 4:45/km pace, which would bring me in around 1:40. That might be a tad ambitious in my current state, but it's not out of whack with my marathon goal time in a few months, so...
I'll go for it, see what happens.
