British Heart Foundation Warwick Castle Half Marathon 2013

On Sunday 17th March 2013 I ran my first ever half marathon in aid of the British Heart Foundation. It started and finished in the grounds of Warwick Castle.

My training had been going ok in the couple of months leading up to the race but I’d been ill a couple of weeks before so the preparation could have been better.

Anyway, it went well, the weather was actually relatively ok. It was cold but dry to start and then started sleeting at about mile 7. This which was nice for a couple of miles but then it was just cold.

I successfully completed the race in 2 hrs 9 mins 56 secs which I was very happy with!

Roll on the training and next year; target …. under 2 hours!
