10 May 2015 – Vitality Hackney Half Marathon

My second Half Marathon.  After running so well in the Welwyn one, my friend Rachel persuaded me to run this one with her.

WOW – apart from the very early start and Mike having a bit of a biff with parking the day went really well.  Was a lovely warm day but not too hot to cause injury.  Running throught he streets of Hackney was like a party.  People had set stalls outside homes with food, there were bands playing along the way and we all had a bit of a party.

Running through the Olympic park was something else! seeing the buildings up close and personal during a sporting event made me feel alive inside.

As we turned to the finish line my legs were in good shape to do a mini-sprint across the line.

Collected a tshirt, medal and a goodie bag with a banana and then met Mike and Erin who gave me loads of hugs.  Felt really good afterwards.

Chip time: 1.51.42. Overall 3498/10267. Female 682/4782. Category F45 17/217.
