Race Preview: Peterborough 1/2 Marathon 2014

Tomorrow I'll be running in the Peterborough 1/2 Marathon.
What's more fun than a run through the Lift Lock?

Back in 2007 was the first running race I had ever done, of any distance.  I have kept it on my calendar ever since (except 2012 due to injury).

My Previous Results

Original flat course:

2007- 2:07:06
2008- 1:53:55
2009- 1:49:17
2010 - 1:45:26

New hilly course:

2011 - 1:38:54 
2013 - 1:43:18 (119/400, 23/40 M35-39, 97/223 Men)

This year is a bit of a crapshoot.  It's a tough course, I haven't been running as much as last year, and I'm not as light as I was in 2011.  Or as young.  On the other hand I've been busting my butt on the bike, so we'll see if any of that fitness translates.

So I plan to hang around a 4:50/km pace and see how I feel.  That would bring me in at about 1h42, which would be pretty good for a February race.
